Interesting article about Trumper and the hairdresser Mr Crisp (including wonderful pictures)

Post by adhoc » Fri Oct 25, 2019 5:29 pm

I found this relative new article (2016) about Trumper and the late royal hairdresser Mr Crisp and I don't think I have seen it been posted on here. It's about an auction of some old shaving related memorabilia used by the royal hairdresser, who described in the article, visited Buckingham Palace every two weeks to "trim the hair and beard of His Majesty George the Sixth. Following the king’s death, Queen Elizabeth continued to use the services of Mr. Crisp to cut the hair of Princes Charles, Andrew and Edward until Mr. Crisp’s retirement in 1971".

He was apparently employed at Trumper for 42 years. The article is well worth a read and the pictures including in it are wonderful!

Look at those gorgeous bottles on display!

The sign on the left says:
"FLOREKA

SPECIALLY PREPARED BY GEO. F. TRUMPER ONLY OBTAINABLE HERE"

And the sign on the right:
"EUCRIS
THE PERFECT DRESSING FOR THE HAIR IS USED BY H.M. THE KING AND THE DUKE OF GLOUCESTER "

Inside the shop:

The pictures in the article are of higher resolution than those I posted above.

Thanks Olle. That’s a great article, but, then, I’m a Monarchist. Whenever I’m in London I make a point of visiting Trumper’s shop at 9, Curzon St (along with a visit to TOBS on Jermyn St and Harris on Piccadilly)
