Vintage ca.1946 Gillette Gold Aristocrat /w Case, Blades & Original Box - MINT
This ultra rare Gillette Aristocrat razor appears it has never been used.
A few things of note:
- The razor itself appears to be a 1946 -- however, there is no printing inside the top cap. Normal 1946/7 Aristocrats had "PAT NOS. ON PACKAGE" printed on the top of the base plate, but, this one is smooth. This would seem to indicate a very early 1946 model. There is one that is found on mr-razor.com that was submitted by Keith Anthony that appears to be similar.
- The blade holder is open-back and has the imprinted pattern on it like some of the other 1946 models; but not the one submitted by Keith Anthony.
- 9 of the blades are sealed shut, but I carefully opened the 10th and found that the blade was marked L-4. I repacked the blade into it's wax paper & outer blue wrapper. That means the blades seem to be from 1941. My guess is that the blades were likely leftover from manufacturing that happened before the war, and Gillette was still using them in these early 1946 sets.
- The original price tag and informational tag is included, as is the original paper outer box.
- The paper box has numerous tears that have been taped together by a previous owner. The bottom of the box is marked "379" probably by the original store owner that sold this (MSRP was $3.79).
Luxurious and uniform original gold plating.
A wonderful addition to someone's Gillette collection.
