I need help on finding information on this brush. Ive never seen another like it with a stand like this. I cant find any information on the manufacturer or finding one that is similar. I have concluded that it is lucite and the brush says "Puro Lasso" or "Puro Tasso". Pure badger, maybe. I think"its Italian Any help would be appreciated !! Thanks. Any help would be appreciated !! Thanks.

"Puro tasso" (with a t) is definitely Italian for pure badger.

“Puro Tasso” = Pure Badger in Italian

Generally, it was not a designation of the type of hair, but more like “100% Badger” – very much like the current line of Omega badger brushes, that carry the “Puro Tasso” engraving regardless of the type of hair (silvertip, black badger, pure badger, etc.).

Another example of this were, until very recently, Kent shaving brushes - they were all marked "Pure badger" (meaning 100% Badger), regardless of the type of hair mounted on them (pure, best or silvertip).

Ok, well that helps a little. Thanks guys. Can anyone find anything on the manufacturer or any similar brush stands ?

I feel you Justin. I'd only use it a couple times, then put it on display.

It's a great looking handle, and it deserves to be used.
If the knot is not to your liking, consider having it reknoted with a knot that suits your preferences.

I have another lucite that I have had renotted and i use. I am a collector so i want to keep things as original as possible. Just simple cleaning and polishing. I have a few brushes already and dont need another one to use.

Not sure about the brush but my dad had a Plisson Plexi with that same style of rack...I was little, maybe 5, and asked if I could listen to his heart with it, haha...I'm not sure where he got it and at 93 he doesn't quite remember either, but he seems to think it came with the brush
