    My guess, informed by the apprentice registry, the blade design, and it's non-inclusion in the most likely directories is that it was made by one of the Thomas Robinsons. There were three in the timeframe of 1750ish to 1765ish, which is when I'd guess that razor was made.

    There's a whole mound of Robinsons in the apprentice registry, but those are the only ones in the right time and trade.
    Thanks for the info Zak. I was guessing around 1750's but wasn't sure and I sent a request to the cutler's company too. No response yet.

    Unfortunately They found no info on this razor at the Cutler's Comapany either.

    I just checked the Bradfield indentures and master lists, and there are no robinsons listed there either.

    So... Maybe a London razor?

    Is that silver? Sterling or plated? did you find yours that shiny or get some work done? I'm still debating getting my plated mug/brush replated as there are a few dark spots, especially on the brush.

    Its plated. It also has some spots where the silver plate has wore off. No, I had a lot of cleaning to do, to get it that way.

    Hi! Do you happen to have the eBay seller's name anyway in your records? I've been trying like hell to track him down to discuss some antique photographs he sold back in 2011. All I can find are his archived sales (on Worthpoint), which don't include his eBay member name.

    Any help you might offer would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
