Vintage Osborn x-456 Coarse Horsehair Brush


This listing is for a vintage Osborn X-456 coarse horsehair brush (the brush has a mixed, coarse horsehair bristle) that was made in the 1950s. I have added a hanging strap and cleaned up the handle and polished the metal ferrule.

The brush is in excellent condition and looks like it was never used. The bristle head on these brushes is super thick, dense and coarse.

  • It has a flat bristle head that is 1.75" in length.
  • The handle is 5.5" in length.

This brush is a workhorse. It can stand up to many different types of media, from thin to thick. If you are looking for a brush to work with cold wax, this one is also a good choice because the bristle is coarse and stiff, so it will move the CW (or other thicker media) on the panel and can create nice surface texture.

I don't often have these available for sale, but if I find one that is in great shape I will pick it up and offer it for sale here.

It was made in the USA
