British made 'Aristocrats' are of the most sought after razors in the Gillette stable, they are collectable as they are quite hard to find, and they appeal to many on account of its appearance and quality of shaves. The British made models are more sought after as their build quality was better in terms of materials and finish than those of their their American counterparts, They were introduced in 1948, this specific razor was in the '58' model (not the lighter aluminium version) and is in great condition. It has no signs of plate loss, corrosion deep scratches, it looks almost new, one can see how the British made razors built their reputation! The case is in good condition with a few patches on the bottom outside and the inside top. This package comes with suitable blade holder to complete the set. We chucked in a few vintage blades for good measure.
A very nice set for any discerning collector or user.
