    Any idea what this is? Likely from the 50's or 60's. His mother was a seamstress. Its also been suggested it might have been camera related. Thanks!!

      Is the red part wax, wood or some kind of plastic ? Neil

      Is that remnants of a brush on the end? does it reverse and fit into the holder?

      Yes I feel like it's remnants of possibly horse hair and yes it does flip and fit into the reverse end. The red part is plastic. At first I thought was maybe Bakelite but it didn't pass the smell test. Thank you both!!

      closest I could find--I searched--Vintage bullet brush--there is one similar used for makeup. Hope this helps.
