Hi all

This is a pure badger brush my brother picked up, but I am deuced if I can find any reference to a 37...  or is it a part of, say, a 30s series?

Does anyone have any information? I'd appreciate it.

Note the collaring. Nice work.

Thank you.

Very nice butterscotch.

Where did your brother find that?

Some of the store brands had different model numbers. Is it branded anywhere besides the front? Maybe it's a special order for one vendor that requested something different?

How tall is the handle?

I shall have to consult to find the right dimensions. There are no other markings, no. Re-knot? Sacre bleu, Monsieur! Mais non!

It was found hidden amongst some shaving relics online. All rubbish, save for this Simpson. Online in Australia. Minus shipping in Australia... what did he pay? 99 cents. Australian cents, that is.
