    Well, they arrived and they are beautiful. Almost NOS. Soap unused with cardboard cover still on it (soap smells funky), seals still on talc and a/s bottles. A/S all evaporated, just a few dried up crystals in the bottom. No smell so can't guess as to what to replace it with.

    I saw these on ebay and passed by them then on my second run through almost passed on them again when I realized what they were.

    I doctored the pics to see them a little better than they originally looked.

    Now in case you still don't see my interest ...... obviously the brush is a Simpson, but not exactly sure which one. Now the stand I believe is for a ceramic Rooney Horsemen set. Just recently (3 weeks ago) pick up the brush.

    Here's one of the only pics online I found of it.

    I was the only bidder so needless to say I'm very stoked!

    Ordered today and waiting on a Pearl Flexi V4 adjustable razor, Gibbs clone.

    I did order a Rex Ambassador adjustable Gibbs clone on Amazon, sold by a third party but shipped by Amazon, but that $249 price tag - and the notice on the Amazon product page that it is a non-returnable item - kept eating at me. Thankfully, I was able to cancel the order as it had not shipped yet.

    My sleuthing research says Pearl has worked out the bugs - blade alignment, head slant, etc. - over the batches, and $80 is much more palatable than $249.

    I've never really enjoyed the shaves from any of the vintage Gillette adjustables I own. They do the job obviously. They've just never left me saying, "That was a nice shave!" at the end. The only razors that have ever done that, that I currently own, are my various Schick injectors, my Chinese half DE blade head and my Gillette Senator TTO. So fingers crossed for the Pearl Flexi!

    My parents had many of AL Jolson albums, they gave them to me while they where still alive. The albums disappeared during my divorce, wonder who took them? Still listen to him on You Tube.
