We have no clue what this is? Was brought at an auction and was at the bottom of a box. The case is real leather, the bottle is glass with contents and the black metal book has contents. About a three inch needle and a 3 inch wire brush. The white thing I think is a hair pick just added on.

I was cleaning the button on the leather cover and found the word schick. So, I was wondering could this be a razor cleaning kit for the old type razor that you had to unscrew and replace with double sided razors?

    I have never seen one of these but I wonder if it could possibly be a man's grooming kit, with brush and wax for mustache?

    Hmmm.. interesting kit. That sounds like a possibility, miKKo! But that wire brush looks like one I'd use to clean a gun barrel! *L* I wonder what is/was in the round container? Maybe shoe polish?? I'll be anxious to find out what this kit is! I love a good mystery, don't you??

    Hi, chinablue! Bravo! You're dead right about the brush. And the 'needle' implement makes much more sense in that connection. Maybe that's what attracted blunderbuss2. : D I do like a good mystery, especially the ones in which you pull a rabbit out of a hat! Take care!

    I'd say that's a major clue, hardtimestater. I looked around a bit and found a LOT of travel shaving soap containers that look like the round container in your set. If I find one like it, I'll post a link to it.

    I sent an email to schick to see if they recognized it. I will post results
