My wife came home today with a few shaving things from an estate sale she passed while driving between work and home.

The people at the sale said that the brush set is antique?  I'm not sure about that, the brush does smell old and musty though  Biggrin  Either way, I can tell it's hand made.  You can see the filled in holes on the bottom of the burl wood where it was attached to the lathe.  There is even a little corked bottle of cologne in the box that smells wonderful.  Kind of a fruity Clubman scent????  I have no plans on using any of this stuff, it's just going to sit on the top of my shaving cabinet for decoration.

She also picked up a small bowl that will be perfect for soaking my boars while I'm in the shower.  I've been using a plastic cup.  I will be using the bowl.

Thanks for all the kind comments about how great my wife is.  I've passed them along to her, and her head has swelled to about double it's normal size  Biggrin

She does take great joy in bringing me home shaving related items.  I'll keep letting her do it for me  Biggrin
