Ever-Ready 150W Black and Marbled Green handle

Friends, here I introduce another beauty in my shaving arsenal. Some months ago I bought this brush. Came from Delta, Colorado, United States to Barcelona, Spain, and after some weeks restoring it, finally the job is done! It has lovely proportions. And lovely shape. Awesome colors, and nice marbled effect! Will be a keeper in my shaving den! Enjoy your restorations! And mine!

I drool every time I look at one of your threads. I'm jealous too; I wish I had your talent for finding attractive vintage brushes and for restoring them so beautifully.
