Good Day

i just bought this Simpson WS4 Pure Badger brush at an antique store. I couldn't find any information on  it by doing a web search and I would like to know if anyone can tell me a little about it.

Thanks

Somerset probably from the 60s or 70s. The 4 is more than likely in relation to size and the WS is probably named after the maker. For example i have a as2a the AS is for alexander simpson. That handle could have been made by a family member with the simpson name but i have not personally seen one before.

Thanks for the comments, I have done a lot of web searching and I have not found a brush like this one. It's kind of nice for $12 Canadian.
