    1948 GILLETTE ARISTOCRAT Safety Razor w Original Case

    RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!



    This razor is in very good+ working condition. There is no plate loss. See photos. The TTO knob

    works well and the doors open smoothly and close tightly. 1948 Gillette Aristocrat with a

    container of vintage blades. This great razor comes in a brown leather covered box with maroon

    velvet interior.



    The case is 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches and the razor is 3 1/4 inches long. All the gold plating

    looks excellent with no discoloration or scratches. The case has one very small spot of vintage

    wear that most probably will wash off when cleaned by the new owner, it can be seen in the pictures,

    otherwise the case is in great condition with no scratches, cuts or dings. 1948 Gillette Gold

    Aristocrat safety razor and it's case are in very good+ vintage condition.



    Some consider this the gold standard of DE shavers. These razors are well built and give

    wonderful shaves. The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a

    pleasure. Great care was taken in the cleaning and sanitation of this razor. Here is another

    shiny razor from the stellar line of Gillette razors.



    HISTORY:

    Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the

    Gillette line of DE razors and, in my opinion, was their flagship razor. True, more upscale

    and pricier sets were made, but only for short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed

    fairly steady production until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961. This appears to have been

    a very popular razor in its time.

    When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you

    would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be

    expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item

    has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your

    attention in my description. All sales final.
