I saw this brush on fleabay today, not that I'm looking to purchase it; just thought it was interesting and wondered if anyone has any info on it? It's metal and ivory about 5 inches tall looks like boar bristles.

I've never heard of it.  I checked it out on eBay and it's an interesting Chinese brush.   Seller "guesses" that it's from the 60's and 70's.  There appears to be some corrosion on the metal part, some of which has stained the bottom of the knot.  Otherwise,  the boar knot looks to be new.

After a little checking; I think this may have been a complementary shaving brush from a hotel in France by the same name. Maybe 50's or 60's.

Good detective work!  Interesting history to that brush.
