I have the same dilemma with my vintage fountain pens and it is the subject of much discussion in the fountain pen collecting community. The way I look at is is that I buy vintage fountain pens and shaving gear for my personal enjoyment, which can't be complete unless I use the item concerned. Hence, I'd use the brush unless such use would destroy significant value as a collector's item. For me, it is only through using such an object that I can fully appreciate it. Nice looking brush BTW.

According to Wikipedia; the Federal Republic of Germany was created in May '49 and West Germany was the common name in English until the reunification of Germany in October '90.
I say use it - it's too nice to not use
