Set of Two Vintage Horse Hair Brushes

Set of Two Vintage Horse Hair Brushes


At an Estate sale for a retired Veterinarian I found these two vintage wooden brushes and couldn't resist their charm!

One is a shoe shine brush, made by Empire and reads, "#7298-I, Pure Horse Hair" and stamped "Made in Israel," on the side of the brush. The Pure Horse Hair and Made in Israel letters are a bit worn off. The wood handle of the brush has a few scuff marks and some flecks of paint, but otherwise in very nice condition. The bristles are very soft and appear to be quite complete.

The second is a hat brush (I think), made by Special and reads, "F5478 100% Sterilized Hair" Some of the lettering is slightly worn off. I believe it also is horse hair and has a wooden handle in very good vintage condition with long, soft, thick bristles with no notable hair loss.


Empire Horse Hair Brush measures 6 1/2" x 2 1/4" x 1 7/8"

Special Horse Hair Brush measures 9 1/2" X 3" (at bristles)

Sold as a set.
