Old thread start-up, apols but I found a VERY similar Simpson brush ad in a 1936 edition of The Chemist and Druggist:

Apart from having the size engraved above the sticker, as well as a different sticker, it looks to be pretty much the same brush. It even references the Horn handle option. Wow could the brush really be that old?! Shok 
Oh and many thanks for sharing!

Very nice. I wonder if "Pure" meant something different back then. That looks like some nice hair.
Sometimes "Pure Badger" was used by manufacturers with the meaning of "100% Badger", regardless of the type of hair.
Omega and Semogue still do it, and Kent did it until a couple of years ago.

With that said, that is a truly remarkable brush!

Welcome. I note the decals on your brush and box are different. Re the brush: it saying ‘London made’ certainly dates it as an early brush, pre-1941

Very nice. Congrats on the pickup. I think this is the same brush I saw for sale on eBay perhaps a year ago. At the very least the pictures I saved look very close to it.

I think perhaps the box and brush are separate items, with the brush being much older. Both are very beautiful, though. Don't see too many of those older Simpson horns. It's a great brush.
