Cute and display-friendly King Gillette Blue Blades box, containing all 5 original unused and wrapped shaving blades. These double-edged blades were used in old safety razors from the era. Made in Canada, thr price on bottom is listed at 25 cents. This particular Gillette box (and razors) is of very old stock, and does not contain the easy-open "snap end" on the reverse which is most prevalent among these boxes.
The reverse of the box reads, "This package contains five Gillette Blue Blades. Design registered 1930. Patented 1926-1929-1931-1932-1935. Registered trade mark. Gillette Safety Razor of Canada, Limited. King Gillette, Founder".
Date code on blades (G 4) indicates the production year is 1936 (refer to http://www.safetyrazors.net/gil_ser2.htm). The last patent date on packaging and on blades is 1935. Box measures just 2" by 1" by 1/4".
Condition: Cardboard box as been opened, and has some wear to the corners. Blades appear unused.
