    Pictured are 2 shaving brush containers that are typical components in the Gillette Traveler and Combination Sets, but the 2 larger containers are quite puzzling. I believe they might go with Rubberset Brushes.

    In the 3 images above, the large silver container matches the dimensions of the container for the Rubberset B-3 shown here

    Based on the similarities between the containers not made for the Gillette sets, I am prone to guess the brass/gold container is also related to Rubberset somehow. Beyond that, I am asking for insights and welcoming best guesses based on legitimate resources. Hopefully @BladeShark will also see this post.

    The larger containers might also be for shave sticks.

    I’m not too sure about the thin container, as it lacks the ability push a stuck stick out. However, I’d love to see what went in it.

    I can’t recall where the silver container came from, however the gold one came from the auction site. And looks to be an ideal match for a homemade ToOBS shave stick(pictured with the silver container).

    You’ll notice there is more wiggle-room or play when the shave stick is in the silver container.
