Yes, bottled.

I have never come across such these before, but two now, the Potter & Moore I picked up in Hobart on Saturday just past. The Faulding's I have had for some time

The Faulding's still has a trace of the original scent, rather a feminine soap. The Potter & Moore ("London & Melbourne") I have seen in the bakelite tub, but not in stick form like this. I am guessing both are around 1940-45 or so, but I have no idea at all.

Has anyone seen anything similar?  There are no ingredients listed, but they have that distinctive tallowy aroma.

Sorry: a little out of focus.

This is on etsy right now.

I think there should be other but I guess glass shave stick are probably a lot more expensive than those in metal tube.

Update:

Here's the advert for the Potter and Moore from 21 December 1940. It's part of a gift set; you'll need to search it out: bottom left gift set 562
