This is a beautiful bone-handled brush I picked up cheaply at the Maitland Fair last Sunday. The bone (oxbone, probably) is in very good condition, and the lamp black is strong. The boar has seen better days, of course, so it'll be something to look at rather than use. The  lathing is just superb; it has a unique 'lighthouse' shape and is quite weighty. It dates from 1932. I think it may be a Hindes brush. Little information is available, but Hindes was a brush making company which apparently made superb dog brushes until more recent times. Enjoy the pictures, chaps.

Great find, I really like the shape.

Dog brushes? Like a shaving brush made with dog hair or a brush to brush a dog with?
