I bought this one with the intent of restoration. When it arrived I was surprised to find it in excellent shape and I don't think it was ever used so I don't think I'm going to do anything with it. Maybe a little polish.


The handle is hollow and the knot unscrewed with little effort The lettering is very deep and all the paint is original and intact. The knot is boar and it doesn't look to be broken in yet, no splitting of hairs. I also Googled the patent # and that was an interesting read. I intend to print out the picture of the patent submission on nice paper as it would look great framed.  It's unusual and I like unusual![Image: cFtKf2C.jpg][Image: A7X4WaK.jpg][Image: mkSGuXU.png]

Great score.  Also, interesting design.  One can imagine having a great handle with multiple knot options which could just be screwed in.

That might be a neck brush. The barber uses it for that area. 

I believe that I'm pert near correct.

It's definitely a shaving brush.  They did call these types "Barber Style" though.  There was a whole write up with the picture from the patent office that confirms shaving brush.  Neck brushes were a bit larger and had longer hair.

I am betting it's a barber's neck brush, I have a newer one by Marvy and I use it with Clubman talc and dust after shaving for that last little bit, very cool brush I would not do a thing with it except use it.

I thought neck brushes were longer and thicker

It could be a shave brush, I just ran a quick search on Hardright and found several and they are being sold as shave brushes but not even close to as good as shape as the one the OP posted.

Most definitely a shaving brush.  Not only does it state that in the patent write up but here's a picture alongside some other well known Barber Style Shaving Brushes.[Image: aSZAvqc.jpg]
