I got this brush off the 'bay a couple days ago. Wasn't sure if it's a vintage Simpsons or not. The way it has the number "5" and "Best Badger Sterilised" on it looks similar to Simpsons.

Any info would be great!

Sorry for the absence but work has taken priority over the last few months! We are working on some large and prestigous projects in London and my full attention has been needed there.
We have had work to finish to coincide with the Olympics as well and I have been spending on average 3 days a week backwards and forwards to London - 3am alarm calls and back home around 9pm! My 'freetime' has been more like my 'sleep time' but, for the business, the effort has definitely been worth it!

Yeah it is. It is based on one of our old 'turnbacks'. Not sure if it is an old Rooney actually. Am sure someone more learned can chip in.

Thanks for the info Gary!

I thought it kind of looked similar to the simpsons "major" wasn't sure if it was made back in the day though. So I can cross Simpsons off the list.

Correct, we owned Coates Brushes - definitely not wither a Coates or Simpson
