[Image: GwsveCm.jpg]Here is a very nice NOS Plisson on its way to me from France. As you can see by the decal, it dates from the 70s-80s.

I have three of these models each roughly the same size: 1960s, 1970s, and from around 1998. I will take a snap of the three side-by-side when I get the chance.

I doubt the price you can see on the base is correct. It might have been 68F at the time, unless it means 68F and 0 centimes??

Either way, I think you’ll agree it’s very nice. Unsure if it is 2-band, or the loft is embedded a bit more deeply. I’m saying 2-band. Enjoy!

Here is the just pre-2000 version. Note the darker tips. 

The current offering from Plisson is, as I understand it, a little less impressive again. I don’t have the current offering. 

Anyway, I hope that posting three in a row demonstrates the changes over time, particularly as regards to the loft and tips.

It seems the 680F was indeed the price for the blonde as indicated on the tag. Thank you, Thomas!

Without going into the details, it is not really possible to accurately extrapolate today’s price equivalent in € based on the 680F figure. In the ten years from 1975 to 1985, the value of the Franc dropped significantly, so priced at 680F, and converting, that means a change from €487 value today to €187 value today. Today’s offering from Plisson is €308. One can only speculate as to the date of making, by moving these figures around. Let’s split it down the middle and say 1980.

Perhaps some day we’ll see some paperwork re Plisson models and dates. Hope so!

Thanks for the question, gary.

Being 2-band (or close to) these brushes have firm backbone combined with very, very soft tips. These vintage Plisson lofts are superb.

Sounds like a winning combination - my only Plisson, of more modern origin (circa 2009) in HMW has very soft tips but falls short of my preference for backbone.
