Vintage DUREX Solingen NOS Safety Razor
This beautiful Durex safety razor was made in Solingen, Germany. This razor has never been used, it comes from an old stock (NOS = New Old Stock) ! Please note, “Never used / NOS” does not mean free of defects. After many, many years of storage, some of these razors may have some oxidation, which can be seen in dark spots or small bubbles in the plating, but also small cracks (as shown in the pictures). I cannot guarantee the aesthetic condition of what you will receive, but please note that these defects are not serious enough to prevent you from using them properly.
An almost identical set (same make, same model but red box) was offered to the passengers of the Zeppelin Hindenburg in the 1930’s!
The handle is made of plain metal, the head has a closed comb, the whole razor is made of chromed zamac, like most German razors.
The razor measures cm and weighs g. It uses standard safety blades! It is presented in pictures with several identical copies, but you will only receive one razor, with its absolutely complete period packaging. One Durex blade included.
The box may have some discoloration, some small tears at the corners, some stains, but nothing serious.
