One thing is the neat looking vintage packaging shown in the advertisement, another and more intriguing thing is the cross sections. The "less honest" brush with the plug shows a way of using less hair in a brush of a given diameter that I've not even imagined before... I just assumed less dense brushes were simple less well packed.

Makes you wonder about the 'glue plug' one sometimes sees in cheap grocery store brushes over here... is it big because manufacture and quality control is sloppy, or to hide the fact that it's a loosely packed brush?

Hans, what I want to know is how on Earth does all that lather defy gravity? It should be in the sink, not on his face!

Glue mixed into the soap perhaps?

Another interesting find!


The lather on his face looks like a beard...

Those brushes had a high loft.  I wonder if the wood plug was added for backbone, as is done with the large glue bump on some modern brushes.  It is clever marketing by Ever-Ready.

O-ho ho but perhaps not simple advertising! Just received this and I noticed I had trouble removing the knot to restore. Once I finally got it out I was a little shocked to find this awful tedious thing. If you can't tell by the picture there's a rather large anyone come protruding from the bottom of this "HELDTITE" brush[Image: 4608036471f417459b043fcddc9bde1c.jpg]
