Anyone know anything about vintage Fuller brushes. I purchased one today for $5 at an antique shop. I haven't heard alot about this company. Not a very good picture of it, I used a crappy camera.
mattymatt very generously PIFed me the handle after I whined about the ridiculous prices on eBay. He'd already done the hard work to get the knot out. I just had to clean it up a bit with some Blue Magic polish (amazing stuff, BTW) and drop a knot it. I chose a Whipped Dog black badger (20/65) set at 53mm loft. I thought the black badger colors matched well the light amber and black of the handle. And I needed a fairly stiff/scritchy brush for soaps, as the rest of the stable are very soft.

After a good soaking in OxiClean and a shampoo.
As you can tell from the black portion of the handle, the hole was quite deep. I filled it with three pennies glued together with silicone. The knot was also set in place with silicone.
Thanks, mattymatt for the PIF. The brush will be well-loved/well-used.
Looks great! I am restoring a lucite brush and being very timid with the removal of material inside the brush. Did you repaint the inside of the recess for the knot plug? What type of silicone did you use? I have been partial to Devcon 5 minute epoxy. Thanks!
Seems I have been missing out on some good restoration threads here in the Brush forum...
