Williams Shaving Stick, instructions

This is a "Williams Holder Top Re-Load Shaving Stick" in the original box. It was made by James & Williams Co (England) Ltd of London and appears to be a replacement stick that would have fitted into a shaving stick holder.

The shaving stick has a threaded plastic ring around it which presumably screwed into a threaded holder that the customer had bought previously. The sides of the box give instructions on how to fit the shaving stick into the holder. There is no date but I would guess it is from the 1940's or 50's. Overall the box is approx 33mm square and 80mm high.

It does appear that the soap has been used but not very much as it still almost fills the box. There is some wear to the box and it is grubby but all the 'flaps' for the lids are intact.

Price £8.00.
Postage & packing for UK £3.50.
