Hello everyone...

I bought this not knowing all that much about the brush... I was told it might be from the 1930s but cant seem to find much about this style of Simpsons....

Can and or will anyone shed some light on this ?

I'd imagine Mark from Simpsons will be along soon and probably can offer some information. It's a beautiful brush

Bill - what an awesome handle!

so - according to Gary - not from the -30s.

Nice looking brush. It's definitely later than the 30s, because I believe pre-WWII brushes would be marked "Made in London" instead of "Made in England".

i would vote for this handle - the age cracks makes it even more perfect and desirable: a deep soul with withered beauty.

It's your brush to do with as you wish, but it was meant to be used and if not by you, then just who is worthy of it? It's not the Arc of the Covenant, just a shaving brush. Use isn't abuse. No finer compliment can be paid to it than to use it for the intended use.

I've been where you are in your decision making on this and that's what I came up with after asking for opinions. But again, it's yours to do with as you wish.

I tip my hat to you no matter what you decide. It's pretty neat.
