RARE 1863 Charles Emerson Barber Strap Charlestown MA
Please refer to our stock # 275(M) when inquiring.
Made, warranted and patented in 1863 by Charles Emerson of Charlestown (a suburb of Boston), Massachusetts, this all original razor strap miraculously retains its original cardboard sheath.
The historically-fascinating sheath label is in exquisite condition with minor edge wear noted to the sheath. The strap shows evidence of use and also remains in fine condition.
The 9.35 inch long strap was advertised for use in sharpening not only shaving razors, but also pen knives and surgical instruments!
A rare piece of early Barber Shop Memorabilia!
