This is an absolutely gorgeous pair of large antique French brushes from the 19th century.
These fabulous brushes have long wooden handles with holes and at rope at their ends so that they could be hanged on a wall. The main part is made of a natural fibre which I believe is horse hair held in place with a metal ring. They are still in great antique condition considering their age with a beautiful timeworn charm. Of course with minor signs of ageing which in my opinion only adds to its true beauty and authenticity today. One of the brushes still has the original label of its maker. Please refer to the images!
Each brush measures about 38 cm (length) x 5cm (diameter) or approximately 15.2 (length) x 2 (diameter) inches. They could be a stunning addition to a stylish and artistic interior as well as be used agin if desired for painting or design project.
A remarkable French treasure with a creative appeal!
