This great item is in ALMOST MINT condition. There is no plate loss to the razor. See photos. The TTO knob works well and the doors open smoothly and close tightly. All the gold plating looks excellent with no discoloration and minimal scratches. 1948 Gillette Aristocrat with an "original" container of vintage blades and the "original" box of purchase. This great razor comes in a NEAR Flawless brown leather covered box with maroon velvet interior. The lining has very minor ware which also can be seen in the pictures. The case is 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches and the razor is 3 1/4 inches long. The case has Almost no wear, the case is in fantastic condition with no scratches, cuts or dings. This 1948 Gillette Gold Aristocrat safety razor, case and "original" box of purchase are in NEAR Mint condition. Please be sure to look at all the pictures. Some consider this the gold standard of DE shavers. These razors are well built and give wonderful shaves. The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a pleasure. Great care was taken in the cleaning and sanitation of this razor. Here is another shiny razor from the stellar line of Gillette razors. HISTORY: Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the Gillette line of DE razors and, in my opinion, was their flagship razor. True, more upscale and pricier sets were made, but only for short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed fairly steady production until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961. This appears to have been a very popular razor in its time.

When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your attention in my description.
