Trying to find a little info on this brush. Seems to be NOS, 906, British Ever Ready Badger Brush. Haven't seen this type of handle from Ever Ready before and wondered if anyone else had similar/any date info. Trying to decide if I should use it or not, bristles seem pretty soft. Handle looks better than in the photos, I'm not much of a photographer.
Thanks

That's a really cool handle.  Didn't even know Ever Ready had a British operation.  I'd certainly try it but I think you will find the knot to be very floppy.  That's been my experience with most vintage brushes I've found.  I would say it isn't new so why not try.  What is the width of the knot?  Would make a great restoration with a new knot.

It's a small brush, don't know the exact dimensions. I've tried it and found it to be quite good, better than my larger brushes, not floppy at all. It wasn't as soft, but brings up a good lather,  so I don't think I'll be restoring with a new knot. The brush was NOS or close to it.
