This brush is in good condition with some minor dings on the edges as would be expected for an item of this age. The beautiful rose, leaf and rose bud design is really quite nice. Centered is an acanthus cartouche with a faint monogram. The side is marked sterling and H449. The brush is 4 1/8" in length and 1 1/4" wide. The bristles are in great shape held in place by what appears to be celluloid.
