Antique 1920s Tailors & Hatters Shop Advertising Clothes Brush for E.Beesley of Abingdon
A lovely example of a piece of antique advertising, dating back to the 1920s.
This professional tailors clothes brush was made for a local tailors based in Abingdon – E.H. Beesley Tailor, Hatter & Complete Outfitter.
The black advertising on the handle of this clothing brush is very typical of the effort made at this time, with nice clear black typography and the simple border that’s nonetheless bursting with detail.
In fair condition for its age, the brush is still good to use. However, there has been some damage to some of the bristles on the far side of the brush, which have been cut away. Only one row of bristles has been cut back, though, so this doesn’t affect use of the brush and isn’t notable if the piece is on display.
