I've been using this brush for almost 2 years and love it! I found it at a high end antique store. It's not labeled with anything- wondering if anyone recognizes who makes it based on the style / emblem?

It's a wooden handle and a very full loft of high end badger (not sivertip though).

Thanks!

That looks unique. Can you compare the hair to some other brushes?

It's higher quality than the omegas I used in the past but not quite as high end as some of the english brushes.

It's probably some defunct brand from the 1970's Biggrin

Thanks for ID - I think you're right! That would make this brush from the 1940's or so based on the wood handle. Opinions? Am I way off?

I found these while researching:
