    Default Vintage brushes

    I quite often hop on Google Image and take a look at old vintage brushes, Simpson, Rooney, Kent, Plisson. I find them to be quite beautiful, especially when the old Butterscotch effect takes hold. I have a few favourites, Like the M7, The Rooney beehive to name a couple. Even some of the cheaper brushes have some great handles like Rubberset and Ever Ready. So lets see some of your favourite Vintage handle shapes. The key word here is VINTAGE.

    Here's some of mine.

    Cool brushes for sure. Did a Rubberset like yours in Mixed badger. A while back I got a few to rework did abut ten or 15 and then ran out of steam. Got a bag full left:

    I love the handle on it . Very nice your grandfather must have been quite the guy. He probably drove a Franklin Automobile by the looks of that fancy brush.
