    I have the Irish countryside aftershave and soap, the soap has great lather qualities but the scent is hard to describe but the aftershave makes the shave at the end. Very nice scent IMO, they tried to clone Irish creed from my understanding.

    A few 1950s era toothbrushes, sealed. I like stiff bristles but they seem harder to find. Old ones are usually stiff.

    If I had to guess, it's a shaving mirror, from the quality of construction and the fact that it telescopes, it probably was used on a ship.

    That's just a guess, mind you. It could be a dentist's mirror, and probably is.

    Thanks Brit, for some reason I thought it was a #22 based on the handle’s design. Thanks for letting me know it’s a #15.

    Gotta love the Brits. The razor above from my collection is not a No. 15. Just a 1936 Aristocrat. Funny how that works.
