1956 Gillette Tech No24

A very cool score today while out doing a little antiquing. It’s been a while since I found a Made In England razor in the wild. A 1956 Gillette Tech No24 in very low mileage condition. Not only a beauty of a English razor but came in a unusual swirled Bakelite case that I never seen before. Had to do some research at the Gillette Bible (thank you @mr-razor ) to realize what I had found. The razor does weigh 63g but did not have no blades to confirm date.

One of my favorite Techs!

Congratulations on your score!
Thank you Gentlemen for the kind words

Man I never see any cases in the wild that nice. It looks great, razor too.
Lovely razor. Congratulations on the acquisition. I just love the case.
Funny, that’s how I found it, by the case. I was looking on the bottom shelf’s in a display when I look up and saw the bottom of the Gillette thru the glass. “What do we have here” I said to myself as a yelped with joy inside realizing what it was
