It’s a chilly, breezy day here in Washington and as I’m all bundled up, it seemed an appropriate day to present the Victorian silver clothes brush monogram challenge.
This lovely piece was made by Unger Brothers of Newark, NJ probably just before the 20th century. It is oval shaped with a glorious sterling silver back and natural bristles.
Form and function
With an item like a clothes brush, function is just as important as form. In the spirit of consumer testing, my darling Talisker kindly donated some Golden Retriever fur for my sleeve. The brush took care of them no problem.
