Today I am offering three of the famous Rooney Finest brushes. There are two smaller Size 1 brushes and one medium Size 2 brush, all in excellent condition. Each as its own personality, but they share in common the characteristics found in all Finests: excellent backbone and flowthrough and soft, very white hair tips. They are wonders to use, and there have never been any other brushes quite like them. They are in their original boxes. No longer available retail, these beauties are difficult to find and very rarely offered for sale. 

First is a small 1/1 Faux Horn (22/40). Its handle has sharp lettering with almost no fading or wear. The knot is quite dense. $500 shipped CONUS. Withdrawn

Second is a Stubby 1 Porcelain (22/42). The handle has slight print wear. Its knot is medium dense. This one is rare, one of only 12 of this model made. $500 shipped. Withdrawn

Third is a medium Stubby 2 Porcelain (24/50). It has mild print wear. It has moderate density. This one also is very rare, one of only 18 ever made. $650 shipped. SOLD

The Stubby 2 is gone first, as I expected.

Gosh! My Holy Grails.
If I was still working I'd take them all without hesitation. 
Good luck John.
