This is a very old vintage French Plisson shaving brush with a pristine horn handle. The handle is in excellent condition, no chips, cracks, repairs, scratches, etc. The brush dates from approximately 40+ years ago. The handle has pentagonal curved surfaces all the way around it.

This is a large (size 18 as determined by Plisson) badger shaving brush with very soft high mountain white HMW hair. As shown in the photos, there is a discolored area on the back side of the hair which does not affect the function of the brush. I have used it for shaving several times and it is one of the softest and best performing of the legendary Plisson shaving brushes from mid-century France.

This one has the soft white badger hair found in top-of-the-line vintage shaving brushes.
This brush is highly collectable. Plisson does not make them like this anymore.

The measurements are:
Knot (hair) base: 27.2mm
Knot loft: 62.4mm
Width of the knot - dry bloom: 67.3mm
Handle width at widest point: 45.6mm
Handle height: 66.5mm

Check with churchhillafemme on this brush, brothers. I remember he was looking for a vintage HMW awhile back.
