Chaps

I acquired all of the parts separately. The assemblage is exactly as I have seen others. Surprisingly, the entire ensemble cost me a grand total of about $8. Not bad Smile Circa 1940? Not sure.

Haven't shaved with it yet. My only complaint is that the container itself is very hard to open and close, being thin metal, etc. I also placed a thin black leather insert into the inside lid to add some protection to the contents; easily removed (if you're a purist).

I think it's a pretty set. The base plate is particularly lovely, IMO.

shaun, i think your wonderful set is older than 1940, service or not. in this case service doesn't have to mean ww2. i have two of the same razors, but with different boxes. i'll have a look at them to compare.

i take it you have used this razor - what do you think of it?

Nice one Shaun - the razor looks to be in mint condition. Smile

Ah no AJC, not mint, just well-polished Smile

And Marius, no, I haven't yet shaved with it.

I have seen other metal Service Set cases, but this one seems to be a little rarer...either that or there's not so much documentation about them.
