My brother recently purchased a beautiful little cellophane-wrapped Vulfix "Bristle and Hair" travelling brush, but we can not really say for sure what "Bristle and Hair" means. Is is pig bristle and badger hair, or bristle and horse hair? Does anyone know? A few brushes say "Bristle and Hair", I have noticed, but my researches come up with nothing definitive.

My understanding is that the phrase means a combination of boar bristle and badger hair.

+1 This is my understanding also, but I have never tired one of these brushes to confirm.

It can be quite confusing and to make matters more complicated, I had owned a vintage Culmak brush that was marketed as badger,bristle and hair to which I would assume the hair is referring to horse. How old is the brush that your brother received? If it is recent it would have to be badger as I do not believe that Vulfix currently offers any horse hair brushes.

I think it might be perhaps 50s early 1960s. Not entirely sure. It also came with an unused stick of Yardley's soap.
