Product description

Antique / vintage wood-backed brushes x 2, including billiard table brush dated 1905
 
An interesting pair of antique / vintage wood-backed brushes. The smaller brush, which measures approximately 23.5cm (9.25in) in length, has straw-coloured bristles, and is stamped "W33 / BEST ENGLISH / FORT BRAND / MANUFACTURE / PURE BRISTLE"; the larger one (bristle span approximately 27cm / 10.65in at its longest) - which, we have been informed, is for brushing billiard or snooker tables - has black bristles, and is stamped "N18" on the side; interestingly, there is a handwritten pencil inscription to the back, which reads: "Margaret (?)Carroll / Her Brush April 25 / 1905".
 
Both brushes, unsurprisingly, have some age wear: each has some small chips to the wood, and there is a channel in the bristles of the smaller brush. However, the bristles of both brushes are largely intact, and neither of them has any serious defects; as such, they remain perfectly displayable as collector's items.
