vetraio50
(497 items)

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!

    Hans Bolling apparently did use rope and fur

    Or have you already ID'ed them? (I'm sure you have though)
  25. vetraio50 vetraio50, 11 months ago
    Thanks for the input Stillwater. I think it's him but not 100% certain. What do you think?
  26. Stillwater Stillwater, 11 months ago
    Hmm well I'm not so sure now, it looks like he signed his creations, but I have the same viking with the spear and it doesn't have anything on the bottom.

    The same hemp rope and fur made me think it was him though. Sorry I can't be of more help
  27. Stillwater Stillwater, 11 months ago
    This one is on Etsy listed as him, but he also put Bojeson's name there in the title so he may be guessing like us

    WMF Landed!

    Wagenfeld overload!
    Thanks Amber!

    Patina?

    Egg!
    Wax?
    Took an hour to get it all off.
    But one of the big ones looks to be beyond redemption.

    The small ones came up well....... Paul likes them!
    That's a surprise!

    You must have remembered this!
