19th Century Clothes Brush with Velvet Covered Ferrule and Lacquered Turned Handle

Sale price $50.00 Regular price $60.00

The sliver or silver plated band on this very lovely antique clothes brush shows a series of dates, from 1872 to 1881--patent dates or what I am not certain. I love it for the velvet covered ferrule, the black lacquered turned handle, and those very pale bristles, horsehair I believe, with red stitching. Good for sweeping crumbs off the table or eraser shavings from the studio table, or just hanging on the wall by its loop.

6 1/4" tall not including hanging loop, 4 3/8" wide, and in very good antique condition.
