About two years ago here on CW I posted a Viking corkscrew that I had bought even further back in time. It was six months ago that I saw the same face on a brush at the Salvo's in Rozelle. That store just recently closed down, by the way. Rents are getting high!
I paid a fair price for this brush.
I was pleased to see that the leather ears were still intact.
The beard is this time hog's bristle.
I have not been able to be 100% sure about its attribution but I believe it might be by Hans Bølling?
There are other names suggested: Laurids Lönborg, Kay Bojesen & Carl Bent .....
I'd appreciate any help!
