Ever-Ready 200 Black and Green marbled handle

Friends, here I introduce another restoration. This brush came from Mayville, Wisconsin, via Royal Oak, Michigan, United States, to Barcelona, with the help of a good friend there, last year. A few months after starting the restoration, finally has been completed and it is a gift for a friend in Geneva, Switzerland.

It has some scars. You will realise the passage of time. But that gives it character. The base is polished and glossy and that highlights his wounds.

Specs
Finest Badger Knot 23 x 50 mm (original knot was boar)
Handle diameters from top to bottom, 36-30-38 mm
Handle Height 57 mm (30 mm black part, and 27 mm green part)
Total height of the brush 107 mm
Total weight 68 gr.(Handle filled with polipropylene granules and epoxy)

Very nice job, Juan. I picked up one of these with the intention of re-knotting it, but the original knot was in such good shape, I decided to use it as is. If I ever wear out the old knot, I'll drop in a blonde Omega 23mm x 55mm. What did you use to redo the lettering?

Another beauty, Dr D. How did you stabilise the cracks on the bottom?

Did nothing apart filling the handle with epoxy and polipropylene. They were stable.
