Handle is about 70mm.

Put a 2 band knot in it.

Sits at around 23mm by 48mm now. I didn't open it up or enlarge it any. 

The lines on the handle through the logo and along the top aren't cracks. They're scratches it acquired somewhere before I bought it. 

It says either no. 59 or no. 69.

Beautiful looking job on a very comfortable handle. You brushes twin lives in St Pete and it is a #59. Enjoy the brush.

Tom and Ricardo, thanks for the kind words.

I am excited to see this one in my rotation. The old butterscotch have such a heft and warmth about them. I've been lucking upon old brushes the past few weeks. I will have to get a lottery ticket while my luck is still running!

In case anyone is wondering. 

Here's the seller's pictures from eBay.

I tried to wash the knot. There just wasn't enough of one left to even try to salvage.

I picked up an old shaving brush like the ones shown above.  That was in 2013, but it didn't have any markings, stickers, etc. on the ferrule.  

I restored it and put a 24mm Finest fan in it.  For the last four years, I've called it, "Unknown Barbershop" brush.  lol

I stumbled on this thread this evening.  Now I can start calling my "Unknown Barbershop" brush by it's real name.  


FYI, Vulfix still makes a shaving brush with the same design, as the #59.  It's the #40 and sports a much larger knot than the #59.  The handle material of the #59 is Catalin.


Thanks for sharing your restorations!

Where is the knot from? I'm in the hunt for a good two band bulb knot.

Thanks
