Antique Two-toned Horsehair Brush with Turned Handle

Regular price $36.00

Another pretty antique brush, this one unusual for its combination of longer black horsehair bristles surrounded by tapered shorter blonde ones. The nicely shaped, reddish stained turned wooden handle features a hole near the end for easy hanging. Late 19th century or so I believe. 

Good overall condition, with a little bristle loss, a fair amount of wear to the wood, and a little cracking (perhaps a repair, but I'm not sure) to the wood on the handle nearish the head of the brush--but sill very lovely! 10 5/8" long, 2 3/4" across at bristles; handle alone 7 7/8" long, ferrule 1 5/8" in diameter. Marked Clinton near the end of the handle.
