I have never seen one of these before, and could find no reference to this stately looking and heavy-ish handled  pig bristle brush. Oddly, the handle gets a weird 'sticky' feeling to it if it is damp. I am not sure if it is celluloid, or whatever. It's not been lathed, judging by the seam down one side. I'd say it had a striped band around the centre, judging by the gap and pale area there.

Anyway, if you know more about it, please let me know Smile

Thats an interesting one. I included a picture of the odd Culmak "Saloon" I have, which Ive been unable to find info on either. Mine came with a similar knot as yours but has been removed in favour of a new TGN 2band.

Very nice colour. I, too, have a Saloon, but the colours are blotchily yellow. Still a nice handle though. Solid.
