ran across this last weekend at a flea market... I've never seen Plisson represented any way other than their banner-like logo... Only clue on this brush was this inscribed name and a "made in France" sticker on the bottom.

Knock-off? Or legit? Either way, it's a really nice handle. Just really like to know what I'm dealing with here...

TIA!

Definitely a Plisson brush with an older style logo. The logo has been changed around once every decade or so (at least for the last 30 or 40 years). The script decal on your brush appears on models from the '70s and at least part of the '80s while variations on the more traditional banner logo seem to have been used both before and after this period. Yours is Pure badger (probably Russian Grey) and one of our moderators here (John) owned it's twin...

And here is a tip for identifying hair on the Plexi (if the sticker is missing or simply states pure), white base to knot = EW, black base to knot = HMW.
