Horsehair Sumi-e Brush With A Repurposed Antique Barbershop Neck Brush Handle
This Sumi-e horsehair brush has a restored & repurposed antique grooming brush handle. The bristles are 4" in length and are my highest-quality premium grey horsehair. The brush handle is hardwood and it has a bamboo ferrule. The handle is from around the late 1920s.
The premium grey horsehair is thick, absorbent, super soft and has great flex. It will make strong and expressive marks or finer lines.
The antique handle is comfortable to hold and is the perfect length for this brush. The handle also has a beautiful patina and shape. The handle is in "original" condition, has a small turquoise stain on it and the #600 stamped onto the handle.
