I am thinking of restoring this vintage brush but the bristles maybe too far gone - any ideas folks?

Thats a nice looking lucite brush you have there. Its a great restore canidate and Teiste's steam method should work well for it.

I use my vintage eve ready nylon brush to clean my coffee grinder.

Not joking. The bristles are that bad.

*yes, I'm doing the handle a disservice, but I'm not damaging the handle by using it and can always restore it later.

That set of first generation fibers needs an upgrade...

Have a look see at some third generation knots.

A Fuller brush of the same manufacturing time period restored.
