Got this brush today and saw the back side that I couldn't see in the seller's pictures. Looks like DRH was selling Simpson brushes but I could not find any information on that. If anyone can say anything more (year?) it would be highly appreciated. If not take it as an eye candy.

Beautiful brush! I have a Harvard 5 that is branded GF Trumper and used to have a couple more branded like this. These brushes were purchased about ten years ago.

Thank you! I'm still trying to figure out what Simpson "era" is this brush.

It is pretty, but I don't know how it feels Wink

I got it yesterday and haven't used it yet. The seller said he doesn't think he used it either, so may be NOS... Not sure if I should get it wet then.

It is beautiful and an early Vulfix made brush.  I have never seen a DR Harris branded Simpson that I can recall, but have seen or own(ed) several Geo. F Trumper, Truefitt & Hill among several others.  I would say you have quite the collectible, probably purchased in person at the London store by the original owner.

Oh, please, don't say this! A beautiful brush like that needs to be used, my friend! If you don't have the courage, just let me know! Biggrin

From the best era of Simpson IMO.

I have a few 2 band GFT ones. I love them.

Special brush with a very very attractive knot, I don't blame you for hesitating on using it. Enjoy it in your collection!

I know I've seen DR Harris Rooney brushes.  I thought I had seen some Simpson ones previously, but they elude my searches right now.

That is the most "bulb" shaped Chubby Best badger I've ever seen.
