Antique Shaving Gear Photos

Discussion in 'General Shaving Discussion' started by Ray Surburn, May 4, 2012.

  1. I'm just getting started with my RAD but I have little knowledge of what is valuable or not. I snapped some photos of what looked interesting at the local antique stores. I realize most of this stuff is common or of little value, but wanted to see if any of you experts could spot anything interesting. If so, I'd be happy to tell you what I remember about it and what it cost (if I remember).

  2. What is that by the Knack someone? Is it a 1912? I think it is, but can't be sure. And that Silver & Gold injector looks sweet doesn't it?

    Unusual handle Schicks are generally worth what they go for in the Antique shops. The all metal handled Schick is one I've seen before. Looks like 4 bucks? Well worth it.
    30 bucks for a cased 40's Superspeed is pretty good. (Second look - the case looks broken, so maybe not)
    I also think the price is right on the blue Lady Gillette

  4. Not being at all facetious, I like that cap gun!

    wait is that a McDonalds razor in third last post ?
     
  6. Pick up one or two of the shaving mugs, everyone needs one for their favorite soap. Way cooler than the containers soap makers supply with their goods.
     
  7. Thanks for the feedback. I quickly snapped these as I was on my lunch hour. I should have took the time to flip the price tags over. I picked up a New short comb at this store earlier for $18. It was supposed to come with blades and a case for that price but they weren't to be found. I bought it anyway and like it more than my EJ DE89L.
     
  8. Ha, didn't even see that I was so focused on the razors. It does look nice.

    looks like a 1912, but its too flat.

    I agree too Phil, should go less if bundled w other razors.
     
  11. It is. I see one went for $5 on the bay. It was described as a:

    McDONALDS 1980 GILLETTE SWIVEL RAZOR BREAKFAST PREMIUM

    Since its in a case...I'm guessing they want more than $5.

  15. I'm about 85% sure that it's a 1924 Ever-Ready.

    I'd also be all over that Lucite Handle brush to the left of the Davy Crockett book in the 4th and 5th picture.
     
  17. I haven't been to an antique store that has the shave stuff grouped so nicely together.
     
  18. A couple more I passed on, and one I bought. What should I have paid for the Ever-ready as shown? What is that tubular piece of metal for? I'm also kind of confused by the blade cases as they don't fit together.
