Art Deco Gilette wet shaving kit, travel grooming set for men or women
An iconic shaving set by Gilette, the travel razor and pack settled nicely into their small black art deco decorated presentation case. 'The New Gilette, known the world over'. This would make a great gift to a husband, a father or an uncle - or why not gift it to a lady? Using the small metal blades (still widely available today) means a lot less plastic pollution from throw away razors, it could be used for decades, and the set looks amazing too!
The handle and comb head screw easily together to form the razor, the Gilette blue blades box originally held 10 blades. The set is in original, uncleaned, but fully useable condition (although the actual blades will need replacing). There is some discoloration of the surface finish and 2 small cracks in the handle (top and bottom). The handle has been marked 'Patented 1920 Canada, other patents pending', the head is marked 'trade mark Gilette, made in Canada' and 'PATENTED 1926-1929-1931, other patents pending'. The inside of the box reads: ' The New Gilette, known the world over, made in Canada'. The whole box is no more than 3-3/4 x 3-1/8 x 3/4 inches in size. The box closes well, but does not have a mechanism to keep it shut.
