Picked up at a junk stall. This pretty blonde boar brush has never been used, and the decal is fairly intact. As you can see, it is branded "Carlton" (which is also a suburb in Melbourne, and the name of an Aussie Rules football team there). The brush is marked "Made in Australia". It is hand-turned/lathed catalin, and quite substantially heavyish.

I could find no information on this brush, but if I do, I'll post. I am guessing it dates to the 1950s, but retro in its own time (Deco styling). There is no wooden plug in the lovely loft, which has a 22mm knot, standing 55mm. Butterscotch (catalin) handle is 38mm. Total height is therefore 93mm.
