According to this, C.v.Eigen also made pocket knifes.
This page indicates that a "C. von Eigen of Solingen" registered a trademark for a razor in 1907.
I found a picture of a very similar razor to yours, including what I assume is the trademark. No real details in the eBay ad though.
The Norsk Folkemuseum has one in their collection - gifted to the museum in 1955.

Can't find too much more on a quick search.

Lovely shaver, Marius!  Are you going to use it?

yes my friend - we are completely corrupt Biggrin

don't think i will ever use it - i prefer this one more: http://shavenook.com/showthread.php?tid=36420 - so perhaps the wonderful mother-of-pearl must swim to another home...

i'm not sure i have what it takes to become a macho-shaver Shy
