Another Certifyd #3 (burgundy and beige handle)

Friends, here I introduce another beauty in my shaving arsenal. Some months ago I bought this brush. Came from Rio Vista, California, United States to Barcelona, Spain, and after some weeks restoring it, finally the job is done!

You know I love old barber brushes. Well probably you remember this other one http://shavenook.com/thread-certifyd-3-r...ige-handle
This one has a burgundy ferrule instead of red, and some edge in the beige part of the handle, over the ferrule. It is more beautiful, in my opinion.

Here you can see vendor pics

Here you can see, at the start of restoring process, cutting the old knot and filling the handle.
