This is a very large old shaving brush that was probably used in a retail store or possibly a barbershop. The handle is wood with a natural finish on the bottom and black paint at the top. The bristles appear to be natural badger hair which is what is indicated on the front. It reads; Barbershop Boar Badger W.Germany. I believe the Barbershop line of shaving items were from the Franklin Toiletry Co. of New York and I believe this brush was probably made in the mid 1970’s to promote the line.
It measures about 13 ½” tall and it is in very nice condition with minimal wear. The bristles look good although a few have shed. There is a minor amount of scuff and scratch wear to the finish on the handle.
