African Fiber Fan Brush with Repousse Sterling Silver Victorian Mirror Handle
This contemporary Sumi-e brush has a repurposed victorian sterling silver mirror repousse handle from the late 1800s or early 1900s. The handle has repousse ornamentation of both sides. It is of British origin and is really beautiful.
The handle is 6.5" in length and the fiber fan bristle is 7" in length.
This is a wonderful brush type that can make a wide variety of marks
The victorian handle is in very good condition. I used a strong epoxy to secure the fiber bristles and fill in the top area of the brush handle to provide greater strength and durability.
The handle is sterling silver and substantial.
