Vintage Pears Shaving Brush – with New HMW Badger knot
The handle of this shaving brush is made of very old ceramic (beginning of the 20th century), for the brand Pears (an old English soap brand). The handle has a very original shape, apparently patented!
The handle has been cleaned and sterilised, but has kept its history and patina. It is in impeccable condition for its age, its logo and ink markings are still clearly visible.
The loft is made of real badger hair, grade “high mountain white”. This rare grade is beautiful to the eye, and incomparably soft. The body of the hair is very, very fine, and the tips are left natural and soft. The knot of this shaving brush has been handcrafted by a French master artisan especially for this handle. So this knot will have its own character, for a truly unique shaving brush!
The shaving brushes of the time were much smaller than today, but so classy… This beautiful shaving brush has the following dimensions:
Loft diameter : 16mm
Loft height : 46mm
Total height : 108mm
