NOS Vereinigte Pinselwerke Leonhardy brush. No brand on the brush, NOS.
 This is an old company. It is roots are a traveling somewhat ingenious craftsman who learned brush making in the centers of France ~250 years ago, then brought it to the rural area of Bechhofen, Franconia/Germany. 
These knots are not  floppy, even with a longer loft. It may be a brush for those who appreciate  Plisson knots.
It has been handlathered, you see postbloom pics. Carefully dried mint condition brush.

This one is 60 USD shipped. Is SOLD. Can offer a few other brushes as well

This is post bloom. The brush is unused,  only testlathered and dried with care.
You can see the excellent quality brass ferrule for the knot through the crystal clear acrylic back. On the sides of the brass ferrule is some grey contact cement glue. Which is the reason why it seems to be grey from the side. Handmade German brush. Now 40 USD shipped

As I was told the hair is sourced  from professional hunting grounds in Turkey and Russia.

Ever wondered what a large traditionally made European brush would feel like?

It has a small crack on the left outer corner of the handle.  Other than that, mint condition
