Vintage straight razor john pritzlaff hardware owl celluloid Milwaukee Wisconsin Made in Germany. Black. The handle is black celluloid with an ornate embossed art nouveau decoration. Embossing on both sides. One featuring an owl medallion with ornate scrolling, the other identical scrolling without the owl.

The blade is inscribed – John Pritzlaff HDWE. CO on one side and 975 on the other.

6 1/8 inches in length – 7/8 inches across at the widest point

The J Pritzall Hardware Co. was formed by John Prizlaff, a Prussian immigrant who settled in Milwaukee in 1841 and started the company in 1850. His business became one of the largest hardware companies in the Midwest and was in operation until 1951.

The case is in good condition. No cracks or chips or problems that I can detect. The blade has two chips on the far end and needs work.

I keep finding these odds and ends of my Dad’s. I am not a collector. Feel free to ask questions.
