Vintage Brushes

Fuller lucite bath brush

Are you old enough to remember the Fuller Brush Man coming door-to-door through the neighborhood selling his great brushes out of his suitcase? The Fuller Brush saga is another of those great all-American success stories! Still in business today and headquartered in Great Bend, KS, the company’s web site recounts the following history:

On a cold, crisp winter day...New Year’s 1906...a 21-year-old entrepreneur from Nova Scotia, Alfred C. Fuller, began an enterprise which has become known worldwide as The Fuller Brush Company. From a bench between the furnace and the coal bin in his sister’s Massachusetts home, young Fuller set out to make, in his own words: “...the best products of their kind in the world.” Mr. Fuller quickly moved out of his sister’s home to set up shop in Hartford, CT where they stayed until 1973. Through the years, The Fuller Brush Company has grown from one man’s fiber suitcase, filled with unique custom-made brushes, to an exciting collection of home and business care, car care, and personal care products, all crafted with the same quality and precision that have made The Fuller Brush Company a name welcomed everywhere. From the beginning Fuller established three basic rules: Make it work! Make it last! Guarantee it! Today, almost a century later, these words still guide The Fuller Brush Company.

Well, this vintage Fuller bath brush with clear lucite back and handle has certainly withstood the test of time. It measures 2" x 4" x 12-3/4" long, and its handle has a hole at the end for hanging on a shower hook. It’s in great condition and all of its bristles are intact. Marked with the Fuller logo on the handle. A true piece of Americana!

Fuller celluloid shampoo brush

This Fuller shampoo brush measures 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” x 7" long. Both the handle and the bristles are celluloid, the handle being a light butterscotch color and the bristles being a darker shade, possibly because of age. Marked with the Fuller logo on the handle, with “Pat. Appl’d For” underneath, as well as “USA” up by the bristles. Usage scratches on the soft celluloid. (Click on picture for more images.)

Art nouveau silveroin clothes brush

This beautiful antique clothes brush features a silveroin top depicting a lovely lady on each end with long flowing tresses descending to a flower with a long stem and leaves.

Piece measures 7" x 2-1/4" x 1¾” tall. Virtually all brush bristles are intact. Top is a slightly wobbly fit after all this time and has a few dings. (Click on picture for more images.)

Pair of gentleman’s silvertone brushes

This is a pair of vintage gentleman’s brushes with silvertone tops featuring a raised rectangle in the center that could hold a monogram. They measure 2-1/4" x 4" x 1-1/2" high. Some of the outer bristles are bent, but all are intact. Unmarked. Usage scuffing on the silvertone tops and one has a cloudy section undoubtedly caused by oils from the gentleman’s hand.

Owens celluloid shampoo brush

This Owens shampoo brush measures 4-1/2" long x 2-5/8" in diameter. Both the handle and the bristles are celluloid, the handle being a light turquoise color and the bristles being a brownish color, probably due to age discoloration. Marked with the Owens logo on the handle. Apparently the Owens Co. was a precursor to the Oral B Co. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Antique leather clothes brush with stirrup loop

This antique leather clothes brush is a piece of Kansas City history. The gold embossing on the leather top reads “Compliments of Chas. P. Shipley Co., Kansas City, Missouri”. Some online research led to the discovery that the Charles P. Shipley Saddlery & Mercantile Co. operated in Kansas City at the turn of the 20th Century as “purveyors of saddles, harnesses, boots, and stockmen’s supplies”. The company was known nationwide for their fine hand-crafted saddles, and I found one their now antique side saddles being sold today for over $4,500! I also came across one of their 1910 catalogs, and the last date reference I found is that they advertized in the 1920 Saline County, KS directory. This clothes brush with stitched leather top measures 2" x 6-1/2" exclusive of its leather loop at one end that holds a little brass stirrup. How appropriate for a saddle company! The black bristles are tapered, so the brush is 1-1/2" tall at its stirrup end and 1-3/4" tall at the other end. Some of the outer bristles are bent, but all are intact. Some wear on the gold embossing. A waaaay cool piece of Americana! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Goody tortoise hairbrush

This is one of the old Goody hairbrushes with detachable brush head. The clear tortoise plastic 1-piece base and handle measures 1-5/8" x 4" x 7-3/4" long. The 1-1/2" tall curved brush head with 8 rows of celluloid bristles slides out. Originally white, the brush head and bristles are now brownish with age. Marked with the Goody logo on the handle, as well as “USA”. All bristles are intact. Usage scuffing on the base and handle. (Click on picture for more images.)

Blue plastic 60’s hairbrush

If you wore your hair in a “flip” in the '60's, your hairdresser undoubtedly used one of these “roller” brushes to achieve the style. Eight rows of 1/2"  black bristles surround the 1/4" diameter octagonal deep turquoise plastic core that measures 8" long to the tip of the handle. All bristles are intact, and this unmarked brush looks like it’s had only light, if any, usage. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Price: $5.00 + s/h

** SOLD **
