I think they are straight razors that a barber would have used long ago. There are 6 of them. There are 5 boxes with lids that appear to be like a carrying case of sorts. The razors measure about 9 " at full length. There is also a cloth covering used , I assume, for storage.
Unknown. My late mother had them, and as I recall she couldn't remember how she got them.
