Q: I am interested in figuring out a value of a vintage Rolls Razor set called “The Traveler.” It includes a travel box and a razor with disassembled handles and other parts. The back of the razor says it’s “Made in England.”
A: Rolls Razor, Ltd., of London was in business from the 1920s into the early 1950s. It made several razor models that used “permanent blades” rather than disposables. Rolls Razor sets were sold in the United States until the late 1940s by Charles Levin & Co. of New York City. Your Traveler set was not an early Rolls model. It probably dates from the 1930s. Rolls sets are easy to find at flea markets. But Traveler sets are not as common as some of the other sets. Your set might sell for $40 to $60 if it’s complete and in good condition.
