A full display box of Minora de Luxe razor blades. This is a French item and the blades sold for 40 francs for a pack of 5 blades. The box would have been used in a chemist or barbers shop to display the blades to customers.

The display contains 40 razor blade packs in an advertising box. All of the packs I have opened contain 5 blades and so I assume that they are all full. There is no indication as to age but at a guess they date from the 1940's or 50's but could be earlier. Must be before 1960 when the franc was revalued.

Overall the box is 140 x 105mm and is 33mm deep. The lid was originally hinged for display purposes but the 2 sections have become separated. Some of the individual packs on the top layer show small areas of damage but the lower layers all seem to be in good condition.

Price £38.00.
Postage & packing for UK £3.30.
