This has been used, but the condition is superb. Mr Razor lists two similar ones but not exactly this one. Check out the beautiful marbling on the box; a beautiful light brown colour, not the usual dark brown. The blades are not original (didn't come with the kit). I put them there because they looked good.

How much did I pay? In US dollars? $6.80. No postage; bought it in a junk shop. Bargains happen! Enjoy!

Sometimes they come with a different handle; just under the 'waist' at the top, there is a 'gap' or ring. I have two of them but they are in poor shape, patina-wise. need plating. But the handle on the above I have seen before. I have a couple spare as well, but also patina challenged Smile

here is an early german advertisement from 1935. same head but older type bakelite box with different hinges + the handle is also slightly different. as far as i have researched your set started 1936. visually i prefer your handle-style because it's so very plain. many find this kind of handle small - but i think it's just enough. i myself hold razors pretty close to head anyway and find long and/or weighty and/or thick handles disturbing.
