here is my last aquisition: fluted kirby with separate tightening knob and smooth cap. serial number 109031 (1931). Inscriptions on the handle: "MADE IN FRANCE" (upper part) and "BREVETE' S.G.D.G.".
Wow! Only Kirby I knew was my Grandmothers Kirby vacuum. It weighed as much as an old Plymouth and had a steel nozzle that resembled the nozzles in old NYC street flushers.. Wonder if it's the same company? Have to look this up. Nice tools!
Well, "cow" is a weird way of describing it, "leather bound case" might be more appropriate
Note the smooth top cap, this indicates an early model, so it fits the 1930s era, yes (check the date code underneath, the last two digits are presumably the year of manufacture). And we are sure it is the original cap, as it has the little metal "prongs" (in lack of a better term) at each corner.
"Au Galop" was a blade brand manufactured by Leresche, and this razor was also made by Leresche, so they fit in quite nicely there
