This tin once held a vintage, Friedmann & Lauterjung's straight razor. The elongated tin is lithographed all over. The top of the lid reads; The American Razor - Renowned Concaved Friedmann & Lauterjung's Electric Razor - Set Ready For Use - Price $3.00. At either end is a circle. On the one on the left it reads; International Exhibition Philadelphia MDCCCLXXVI. 1876 was when the Centennial International Exposition was held which is considered to be the first official World's Fair in the United States. I can't make out the specifics of the circle on the right. In the center is a dark cloud with lightening and the FL "Electric" trade mark. The sides and back are litho'd with a geometric design. The lid is a slip on style and the tin was made by Wm. Vogel & Bros. of Brooklyn. Inside the tin has the original molded flannel pieces that would have protected the straight razor.
It measures about 6 ½" by 1 3/16" by more than ½" thick and is in nice condition with some wear. It has a couple of tiny dents and there is some light colored staining. There is also some paint and litho loss particularly on the ends where the circles are and on the back.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
