I'm with you, John - my vintage Plisson Plexi HMW is just on another level from anything else. That reddish middle band with long snowy white tips is something I've never seen in any other brush, including vintage Plisson HMW brushes.

Approximately how old would that brush be ? Roughly.  I'm asking both of you, Monk and John. It is beautiful.

I'm not at all an expert, but I would guess from the "Plisson" labels that mine is probably from the late 1970s and David's from the 1980s or 1990s.

I'm not a Plisson expert but I believe John's assumption based on the stickers would be reasonably accurate, however the original label on my brush accidentally peeled off and had to replaced by a more recent one. Mine seemed to have the same sticker as John's - here's an ancient picture:

Maybe most beautiful item in my collection of wet shave nonsense is this Joris brush with a Plisson knot and a palladium plated handle.

Thx!

The Leresche’s plating is a nice match, I think.

Beautiful brush! I still can’t believe that Palladium is more expensive than gold, and gold is more expensive than platinum at the moment! Soon dogs will be getting along with cats, and Up will be down!

I consider this circa 1900 vintage crystal and silver perfume decanter to be quite beautiful.
Shown at far right in the above photo, it belonged to my grandmother and I use it for aftershave lotion.

I think I would have to agree with you.

If not the most beautiful. Certainly, the rarest and my favorite. A custom Varlet Brush.

That’s a beautiful razor. Do you use it much, or is it a showpiece?
