Estate sale find, Foster & Bailey (F & B) with sterling silver scales. The blade is toast but the scales are fabulous.

The scales are in a Art Nouveau style with great patina. Will have to replace the blade to bring back to life.

Not that this is a Simpson thread but something as of recent seems different with the Chubby 2 Syn. The fibers are actually looking like natural 3 band badger hair! I have had this happen like 3 times looking at someones picture of the "Synthetic Badger" and I have to say that it appears like natural hair!

Thank you Ben. Congrats on your own new brushes. The jade duke and moonjava Captain look awesome.

These are very nice. Simpson synthetics are great, they are no Manchurian, but well worth adding one to your rotation.

I agree Zack, Its partly why I picked up another. They have really improved the look of the "hair". I would love to see the next round come out looking like 2 band hair.

Lucky at an auction!

The labels were hidden in the pine base for a hundred years. A "light green" Almost ten inches; short by an eighth....
