    This great item is in MINT condition. There is absolutely no plate loss to the razor. See photos.
    The TTO knob works well and the doors open smoothly and close tightly. 1948 Gillette Aristocrat with
    an "original" container of vintage blades and the "original" box of purchase. This great razor comes
    in a flawless brown leather covered box with maroon velvet interior. The lining has one tiny ware
    spot which also can be seen in the pictures.

    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 absolutely no wear, which can be
    seen in the pictures, the case is in fantastic condition with no scratches, cuts or dings. This 1948
    Gillette Gold Aristocrat safety razor, case and "original" box of purchase are in absolutely mint
    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.
