I hope that this is an omen that 2017 will be a great year for my collection.  A NOS Plisson Size 14 in High Mountain White.  It has all of the original decals and shows the tri-color knot that indicates this will be an absolute stunning brush to use.  I am honestly not a fan of the Plexi handles, but that's not going to interfere with the excitement of scoring another one of these fantastic vintage Plissons.  I will follow up with a report once I get a chance to use it.

Fantastic find, Dave! Hair looks very similar to my vintage Plexi #18, I'd say you're in for a real treat... The best of the best, IMO.

Wow stunning brush. Those older Plisson brushes are great finds, they don't have use badger hair like that anymore.

The Plisson set sail for it's maiden voyage on Saturday.  The size 14 has the least amount of backbone of any Plisson brush due to the higher loft to knot diameter ratio.  However, because the HMW hair has such thick shafts and thin tips the backbone and resiliency is still very pleasant.  The plexi handle proves a bit awkward, as I expected, but the heavenly knot more than makes up for that.  I already lost one of the decals, even though I was taking care not to get the handle wet, but c'est la vie.

Thats a beautiful brush. Sometimes I wish there was something that could be put over the decals to preserve them, but as you said (better than I) stuff happens.  Cool
