Hello

I have here some nice stuff that I would trade for a vintage Plisson Beehive, if I can't get the brush by trade, I will sell those items to raise funds for the brush.

So, here we have a UFO colibri 80mm, Hemple Titanium handle 100mm, dub slim handle, NI big fellow, Barbasol floating head and Simpson Duke III manchurian badger from early 2014.

Feel free to Pm me if you have another vintage plisson size 12/14 and want to part with.

Thanks, Chris

Tempting, but I wouldn't budge off my Plisson Beehive. First because I adore it so and second because it has led a rough life and needs to stay in my assisted brush living program.

What is the history on Plisson beehives? I think that I have only seen 2. One belonged to Dr. P and was shown on another forum and one was sold to Jack (Celar36) I believe. I would be interested in when they were offered and if anyone else has one.

I don't know the history but I was able to find one that was pretty dirty and had a few dings. I thought for sure it was going to need a reknot, but was able to get it cleaned up pretty well and the knot is the classic vintage Plisson goodness in all its glory (minus a few hairs here and there). I really enjoy the handle shape and hope to get it recreated by one of our artisans when the time is right.
