These 2 antique boar bristle hair brushes are in excellent and usable condition. This is a Birks set and was manufactured in England. Boar bristle is a natural fiber, making it great for distributing natural oils from your scalp through the length of your hair when you brush it. Boar bristle also makes for an excellent beard brush, helping to condition and soften the beard hair when used alone or paired with your favourite beard oil. The brushes in this kit are in great shape and could either be put on display as a collector’s item, or used for the beard or hair.
The leather case that holds the brushes is thick leather with a sturdy zipper running around the perimeter so it opens like a clamshell. The case measures 15cm x 13cm x 6.5cm. The initials “B. N. S.” are pressed into the top of the case and painted gold.
Inside the lid of the case there is a snap piece to hold a comb.
The case has a few small markings on the leather, but
