A good friend of mine visited Holland recently and brought back a nice straight and an unusual brush. The story goes that the brush is from the late 1800's and the straight is from the early 1900's. According to the person whom my friend bought the brush and razor from, the brush belonged to a sea captain and the knot is made from badger hair. Not sure if the razor belonged to the sea captain.


If anyone can give me some info on these and possibly what they may be worth I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

That is a great looking set! That razor looks very lovely.
That brush looks more like horse-hair than badger.
Sorry, I can't be of any help to you and good luck.

That marking is very similar to the brand Aigner. A US Fashion House. I have a ball point pen of that brand.

ARASH,
Yes that looks exactly like the logo on the brush! I'll update the thread after I contact Aigner and receive a reply.
