Vintage NOS PLISSON Shaving Brush - Natural Bristle - Size 8
marvellous NOS shaving brush, handle is made of white resin and a black base. Here are the specs :
Total height : 9,3 cm
Knot diameter : 18 mm
Loft height : 51 mm
Bristles : boar
These specs correspond to a size 8.
This brush comes from the old stock of a cutlery in the North of France, the granddaughter of the owner found them while moving boxes out. These brushes are from the 1970s.
This particular brush is interesting : the knot looks unused, but the handle as a damaged sticker and some stains, and most importantly the base reads “Monture en Nylon” which means “nylon knot”. But I guarantee it’s boar… So, considering the damaged label and wrong knot, I’m thinking it might have been an aftersale service brush ?
Please note, during its long sleep, it might have dried a bit, so some of the boar bristles might break. I can provide a brand new Plisson sticker with this item (for free), please remind it to me at checkout.
