    Hello fellow collectors!!

    I recently acquired this set of clothing brushes and leather case from the early 1900's. I believe these are English military officer's clothing brushes from the WW1.

    The brushes are made from badger hair. The set was made in England. The leather case and brushes are still in premium condition and make a nice addition to my collection.

    Thanks very much for stopping in to have a look!!

    Scott

      oh i see! what an interesting find!:)
    14. fleafinder fleafinder, 5 years ago
      do you use them to brush your clothes as well?
    15. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      fleafinder,
      No, I don't use them to bush my clothes with. I have a more modern day clothes brush/lint remover that I use. I just have these on display with the rest of my collection.
    16. Caperkid, 5 years ago

    19. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Oh except for shaving brushes, in France they are généticien name of "blaireau" even made in nylon :-)
    20. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Oops, generic! Not généticien, lol

      Roy,
      Thanks brother!!! Thanks also for the appreciation and for stopping by! Always appreciated!!
    22. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      fleafinder,
      Badger hair is fairly stiff. Shaving brushes are also made from badger hair. So, if you ever come across a shaving brush you can see what badger hair feels like.
    23. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Kyra,
      Thanks very much! Yep, shaving brushes were also made from badger hair. Thanks for the comment, the love and for stopping by. Always a pleasure!!
