1940's Oster Model 105 Hair Clipper with Original Box
Small but mighty, these Oster Model 105 vintage hair clippers are hand-powered making them perfect for bomb shelters, wartime trenches, Everest expeditions, space stations, etc. To operate, simply squeeze the handles back & forth while sliding against the skin - the blade oscillates thus ridding the dermis of problematic pelage. Cutting depth can be changed by adjusting the wingnut.
Manufactured in the 1940s by John Oster Mfg. Co. in Racine, Wisconsin, USA. Measures 5½" long. Comes with original bright green cardboard advertising box, complete with graphic imagery from the period.
CONDITION: The chromium-finished clipper is very sharp and in excellent condition, like new. No rust/oxidation, still works perfectly. Box is showing some signs of age with bumped corners and slight fading.
