"...life is like a box o chocolates. you never know what you're gonna get."

So is fleabay.

I bid on this lot, hoping that one of the soaps might be a great vintage puck.

What I got...
the black one had a pretty nasty crack.
The red-ivory EveryReady will be okay, though I doubt I'll ever do anything with it.
The Klenzo is a candidate for a reknot.

And the soaps...

one is Colgate mug
the other Williams.

They're both old enough that they are probably decent. Don't know for sure. Haven't tried them.

I do know that neither one is the hoped for Yardley! Sad

Max, hopefully it wasn't an expensive surprise. Good luck with the brushes. They actually look quite nice.

The price I paid was modest enough. I think the Klenzo makes it ok.

Yea too bad about the cracked rubberset, if the crack isn't bad you may be able to salvage or practice with it anyway. I have had much luck with vitange handles either. The other two should make nice restores.

Sometimes you just don't know until you get the lot. I've heard a couple times of guys getting an apparently nondescript lot that turned out to include a vintage real ivory brush.
