This piece is a very unique Inlaid Art Deco designed Stropper. The art deco design is on the top of the piece and on the handle as well. It was made by Beardsley & Wolcott Mfg. Co. and was called Precision Blue Beard. The bearings run freely so the piece could be used is someone so desired.
The patent number on this piece 1550861was issued on 8/25/1925 and run until 10/10/1933 when they changed the design and a new patent was issued.
This gentleman's stropper is in very good condition. There are a couple of enamel pieces missing from the design but all in all it is extremely attractive with excellent shine to the metal case.
