This vintage Christy safety razor is called the Advertiser. It comes with its original box and on the inside of the lid it states; This is a Complimentary Razor and Not to be Sold. It was from The Christy Sales Co. and manufactured by The Christy Co., both of Fremont, Ohio. It comes with one blade in the razor and the original paper instruction sheet. I also comes with a colorful old Christy’s Blades box which has a silhouette of the odd blade and the price of 25c. There is one remaining blade between pages of the paper packet which goes into an open ended envelope within the box.
The razor measures about 4” long and the box measures about 4 ¼” by 1 ¾” by ¾”. Both are in good condition with minimal wear. There is some discoloration on the bottom of the box. The directions have hardly been opened but have some bent corners. The blade box is missing its inner flaps and as previously mentioned, it has only one blade remaining.
