    Another razor to cross of my bucket list. This Aristocrat and case is as beautiful as a 100 year old razor can be. It is in a wonderful mint condition. The French Ivory case, velvet and logo is near perfect. Both 2 piece blades banks are completely intact. The star it the show, the three piece gold Aristocrat appears to be unused. It is serial # D343xxx. No wear, plate loss and has perfect teeth. The only thing is can say bad is it does have the small crack in the handle but it is still together. This is a wonderful score and great addition to my collection

    Thank you Gents for the kind words

    Did not buy a museum but trying to open a small wing in one. HAHA

    French Ivory, or Ivorine is a imitation ivory made from Celluloid. Gillette did have some cases made from real ivory, but this is not one of them

    What a lovely razor. I've only seen one other. I don't think people realize exactly how rare that razor set is.
    I have to agree...it's the most beautiful invisible brush I've ever seen.:D
