I just received this brush and would love some help to identify what I have. Based on what I know, it seems like Pre-Vulfix, but I'm not sure if it goes back to Somerset or something in between. This is a photo from the auction; I will post more after I wash it. The knot seems very dense and in great shape. I'm curious how it will compare to my "modern" Duke 2 Best. Thanks for any help.

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to help out any more than to say its pre-Vulfix. My guess is that its from the David Carter Somerset era, since both the brush itself and the box are in such great shape.

Whenever its from its a great looking specimen! Congrats!

I can only tell you that you have scored a heck of a lot of a shaving brush !!!

One of those I need to add to my collection.Does the handle has kind of a reddish/pinkish color? Looks like a David Carter era Duke 3.Fantastic and enjoy it !

I was thinking the handwriting on the box might be a clue, too, for someone in the know (Mark?).

Teiste, I need to look more closely at the handle and see if it has that Somerset hue. I didn't have much time last night for introductions. Biggrin

That's a great looking brush. It looks hardly used at all.

Interesting thing here: when I found this listing it said "2 Available / 1 Sold." Looking at the photo above again, I'm not sure the brush I got was the same one pictured. Below is my brush right after a wash (still a bit damp). In any case, I love the shape of this knot. Pictured next to my beloved Duke 2 in the last shot.

I agree with Teiste. I like it even more viewing it for the second time. It's in such good condition but it has so much character.
