This is a very small brush that came to me part of an incomplete travel set.
Any of you know the maker?
The handle split on a couple places, but I think it can be stabilized easily with some epoxy.
I am not sure what to make of the knot. Maybe a fine-bristle boar.

The hair is badger for sure. I lathered a bit of hand soap after soaking it a few minutes and the funk is exactly what you get from a new badger knot. The hair softened quite a bit after cleaning. 
Also, I think it just the paint that cracked. The handle looks and feels solid.

Drop an email to Mark at Progress/Vulfix/Simpson and see if he might recognize the handle.

Interesting little brush.

Very nice.

I have no idea what brand it is though.
