Here's another brush about which I can find no information. It is finely-lathed and polished Catalin.

I don't know where it was made, but I would guess England. Despite saying "BMW", the logo does not resemble anything I have ever seen or researched re BMW Germany (engines, cars, etc).

I am sure it's a mixed loft brush, and the wording details (decal, stamp, etc) say:

"The LUXA Long Wear Luxury Brush 5" ... and  "BMW (Dependable) Guaranteed Sterilized".

The other side says "BMW Dependable".

The knot is 17mm; the base is 30mm across. The handle stands 48mm, and the loft is 45mm.

Anyone seen anything like it? Pictures:

I recently purchased a vintage brush and need some addition info on it. There is no makers mark and only has a partial sticker. From what the seller told me, his father bought it in Germany in the 60's, and that pans out due to one word I can make out is Dachshaar which translates from german to badger hair.





Here are a couple pis ...

Let me know if you have any ideas. I looks like a tulip Simpson, but it's not, unless Simpson made it for another retailer.

Thank you for your help.

The label reads "Dachshaar". Hence, it is a German brush.
