Made in England, this is the Rolls Razor Traveler. Circa 1920s-30s. It comes in a hard shell, nickle plated case, which is inside a hard shell, hinged box that is covered with alligator on the outside, and lined in velvet and satin. It appears to be complete, with the original, illustrated instructions, which are worn, but legible. I found the best description on Wikipedia........ "The case was a rigid rectangular frame enclosed by two detachable lids, one lid carried a stone and the other a leather. The lids could not be interchanged. With a lid removed, oscillating a handle drove a shaft along the frame. In both directions pinions on the shaft engaged with racks on the case to rotate the shaft to either push the blade forward against the stone or drag it against the strop. It was easy to use, fast and safe. It was noisy as each change of direction rotated the blade to slap against stone or leather."
It's very heavy, high quality, and both the ornate, silver tone, nickle case, and the outer box are clean, and in excellent condition. There is minor wear inside the box, primarily the light stains on the satin lid, under the logo, that you can see in the photos.
I currently have several other vanity items in my shop, including other vintage and antique razors, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them, type, "razor" in the California Girls search box at the top of the page.
