This is a one of a kind Morris and Forndran Brush...

                   

The handle is made from fossilised rock that is over a million years old.

It took Lee 5 attempts with this material before he had success.
Being rock, the handle is heavy and that's the reason I haven't used it.
I now try to use all my brushes and have been selling off the ones that are simply collecting dust.
This is too unique not to be enjoyed regularly.

The hair from memory is Rooney Heritage (I purchased it in June 2011).
I know it doesn't exactly appear to be completely 2 band, but I believe it is otherwise the black band would be much thinner.
Also the knot is hybrid or fan, so the hairs are not set as short on the outside as with a bulb shape (by way of further explanation).

Knot: 26 x 53mm

UNUSED... $220 including shipping to the US ***SOLD***

Beautiful. My grandfather was a security guard at the L.A. County Museum of Natural History and lived just a block from it, and when I was little and sometimes spent weekends with them, he would walk me over to the museum on Sundays when it was closed and let us in so that I could wander around and gaze at the fossils and dinosaur bones and mummies and such. Someone is going to treasure that brush.

Very nice brush ... I would be even more tempted than I am had I not ordered a M&F from Lee today!

Damn you Ben.
