These display boxes were intended for retailers to display Simpson brushes.

The display boxes and brushes were made in Somerset,
prior to the company being purchased by Progress Vulfix.
The boxes are made of heavy black cardboard with a photo-frame style back.
They are designed for displaying in an upright position.
The lid is heavy and made of glass or plexi-glass.
The lid lifts off in one piece and has no hinge.

These particular display boxes contain:
T1 Pure, H3 Best, B4 Pure, PJ2 Super, D1 Pure and a Wee Scot.
Case Pure, CR2 Pure, B3 Pure, B2 Pure, CR6 Pure and a Duke 1 Pure.
B1 Pure, CR2 Pure, KH2 Best, 58 Best, 46 Pure and H1 Best.

I don't own these,
but I thought members here would be as interested in them as I was
and thus decided to share my find.

They were on eBay a couple of weeks back. I think he was asking around £200-£250 for each box including the brushes.

I saw these on the 'bay weeks ago and I think it came back. Did you end up getting them?

Its a interesting piece of history, marketing. They seemed to really pushed Pure Badger it seems as I would expect to see a Duke 1 with that as the prescribed best 'bang for your buck' is Best. So its interesting to see the hair combinations of this older display set. That seller also had a few brushes that were out of production. Thanks for detailing what they are. Really like these small brushes.

Thanks for point them out.. really a keeper of the history of brushes Ben!, well done, thx!
