    Default NOS Eterna Boar

    Not a super expensive brush and it's not that I even needed one as I have like 16 in rotation but picked up this NOS Eterna boar pretty cheap, have no idea how it will perform or even hold up but the handle is pretty cool.

    That is cool! Likely it may shed a bit for a while. Load it up on SOTD!

    Maybe a bit of clear nail polish on the label?

    Never thought of nail polish on the label... thanks I will get some before getting wet.

    I have a few old CMon's with little labels like that. Sealed them with clear nail polish.
    Am leaning toward a full clear job over the label and all. Saving that is key, I think!

    You are not gonna toss that in hot water, are you?

    I can't make out the label completely. Made in . . . . What is the country of manufacture? What is the knot size?

    The form and markings remind me of a brush that one sometimes finds for cheap in the French supermarkets. My brother-in-law has one like it, although the ring around the knot is made of plastic, not metal like this yours. Leonhardy and Vie-Long also have similar handles, although the painting and wood handling of your example would appear to be far better.
