I have a small collection of early M&F brushes.  I have wanted to add one of these for some time now and just got this new addition for my Den:  A Morris & Forndran 3xl Ivory with Tortoise Bands, all Lee. Pictured here with her brother 3xl in all Tortoise, also a pre collaboration brush.  The picture doesn't do it justice. It is very classy looking in person and has that great heritage hair from 2013.

That's acrylic (same as used for the M&F Group Buy Chiefs) that was left from a project for Dunhill.

Approximately 50mm tall and 41 mm wide.

The McInroy CAD drawing gives 50 mm tall x 42 mm wide at the base.

What I have indicates 11 handles were delivered by FrankLynn Tech with an entry date of May 13, 2013. 

13-May-13  Chubby 2-Bead Size 3, Ivory & T'shell 11

Nice catch!!!!

Thanks for the info, Ken.  Is it 11 on that date only or only 11 3xl Ivory and Tortoise period that Frank made for Lee?  Just wondering.

That's the only reference to double-beaded Size 3 Chubbies made with Ivory and Tortoiseshell I found on the spreadsheet, which I understand includes all handle deliveries to Lee Sabini from October 10, 2005 to October 10, 2013.

Every once and a while I go searching to see if it can find a Paladin with that acrylic; the Chief looked great in it.
