Hello gentlemen! I took on a restore project for fun. I bought this vintage Ever Ready brush from eBay. The cool thing about this brush is that it has a magnet installed in the bottom of the handle from the factory, and it resembles a Simpsons 50 series. You also don't see too many of these brushes in all ivory. I would love to see somebody with a Red Ring buy this to make a matching set. Otherwise, it would make a great first badger brush for someone.

When I received it, I removed the old knot and enlarged the 18mm opening in the handle. Then I sanded it all down and polished it to a nice shine. I reset the shelf and installed a fresh TGN Finest knot, fan shape. There is a small nick in the handle which you can see in the pictures, I was not able to get that out.

Knot - 24mm
Loft - 45mm
Handle height - 52mm
Overall height - 97mm
Loft to knot ratio - 1.88

The brush has never been used before and I am offering it for $40 CONUS via Paypal, price includes shipping with tracking. If you disagree with the price, please PM me. If you are SPF with me, please pay in a timely fashion. Please do not post PM sent in the thread. Thanks for looking!

That is a great brush at a great price. I have done a restore on a vintage ER 650PB with a very similar knot and dimensions. It is one of my favorite brushes. The old solid ER handles are very nice. GLWTS. The buyer will definitely be very happy. TGN two band finest knots are excellent and make fantastically good brushes. you would have to pay close to triple the asking price for a similar Simpson.
