As a point of reference, 10$ in 1957 is about 91$ today when inflation is taken into account. Not too bad considering the complexity of the design.

Looks like it is from Goldwater's Department Store out of Phoenix, AZ.

"A light shave at night" -- nice concept. I can imagine it at the request of a significant other.

Actually a gentleman was expected to be wearing a jacket, tie, hat and have a clean shave or he would not be admitted into an establishment for dinner nor entertainment. 5 o'clock shadow or scruff was considered too blue collar for upscale restaurants or clubs. you would be directed to the local diner or pub where the only requirement was that you had the money to pay your bill. not a pretty picture when your significant other spent a good part of the afternoon getting dressed to the nines.
