Adoration brush - Butterscotch handle with black ferrule

Hi mates. Here another humble restoration in a magnificient brush. Not many words. I'm speechless. Just to say it came from Burlington, Iowa, United States, to Barcelona, Spain, some weeks ago. With almost perfect shape. Maybe it was never used.

Here we go. Fasten your seatbelts.

Handle ready to re-knot. Making the shelf with epoxy and curing it with Internet technology.

To say I drooled when I saw the restored brush would be a gross understatement: I slobbered. That has to be one of the best looking brushes I've ever clapped eyes on. Where did you get a handle in such superlative condition from?

At the famous online auctions site, friend. I should pay some money. Was not cheap.

Thanks, friend. The effects are a lantern at the bottom and a daylight bulb at top. So the blue color.
