mid-19th century baleen STRAIGHT RAZOR & MACRAME CASE

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Not for the razor enthusiast seeking fine condition examples of the category, but a desirable period used and carried personal item of the time for the historian / collector who covets the eye appeal and character of the everyday item so frequently used up and cast away in the period. This well used straight razor offers a pleasing condition whale baleen grip while the tang of the razor bares the barely legible marking of the HOBSON, HOUGHTON & CO LTD Steel Works who commenced work in Sheffield in 1863. The period paper mache case offers the considerable attention of the original owner who covered the case in cotton cord macrame. A popular hand craft of the period, while macrame is most frequently attributed seafarers the skill was a pastime of many a coastal born Civil War volunteer. With considerable evidence of period ware and carrying, this example remains in solid condition. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
