Myatt Minor razor

I found a picture online of a razor I’ve not heard about before.

From what I can tell Myatt was/is a British company based in Birmingham, who patented their first safety razor in 1929. The Minor allegedly was manufactured in 1930, and uses diamond shaped studs to locate the blade.
What I find interesting is that the Myatt Minor is a composite razor – the top cap and handle is made from steel according to the sources I found online, but the base plate is bakelite.
