Whan i have done my searches on Italian artisans, i finded Cedes Milano (Italy), a small manufacturer who make some beautiful handmande products (with leather, horns, bamboos, etc.).
Here is a sample of their brushes : they all cost around 250 $ min. (each are knot 21mm/22 mm + silvertip)
Are you ready to be open-mouthed ? Biggrin

If had the choice, i will take the 2nd (springbok horn), it's a masterpiece. And you ?

These are quite distinctive.

I like the 2nd and 4th ones pictured.

Hmm. I'm not so sure myself.
They sure look lofty to me.

Lovely designs, but they are 'trop petites' for me! I would need at least a 26mm knot!  Biggrin

26 mm ! with one tour of brush you put foam everywhere on your visage and more Biggrin
21/22 and 24mm more than enough for my needs (i confess i haven't yet tested more than 24mm).

Mon ami, I used to think this way, also, before I used a larger brush, but since using them, I can't go back to the smaller ones and 26mm is the smallest I could use. It also helps me go through all of my soaps, much quicker! Great luxurious feeling! Biggrin

The handles look great but what about the business end? I'm not seeing anything special about those knots that would make me wanna drop $250+. That and Celestino has a great point. 26mm is my choice as well!

It's especially the handles who are expensive. You have real springbok horn, the 1rst is composed with pearl, etc. 
But i am agree, it's overpriced (even if i spend a lot for razors with a PILS now and search a Cobra to test ...)
Plisson, for exemple, is also expensive for their best brushes with little knot.  An antique + synthetic (knot 21mm)= 115 $ approx. !

as to handle i would have chosen the bamboo - looks innocent & crazy at the same time - but the knot had to be completely different.
