    From some examples online it probably had the image of a woman painted under glass in the middle. I've just started to get some hunting in over here in the bahamas so its encouraging to get a nice old relic like this early on in my stay over here. I have gotten some other not as impressive relics that I'll post up next time. Hope you guys enjoyed it.....happy hunting everyone !!

    I think late Victorian period rook.....most other stuff dates to the 1890s-1900. These brushes were all hand made, and it shows in the craftmanship.....little tiny Brad's through the sides hold the wood and bristles in. Never thought a hairbrush would fire me up like this....but this is a nice display piece for my relic collection. Plus I never thought I would dig up a hairbrush like this on a beach.

    What really cool to me is...

    This is the first I have ever seen come up.

    Not saying one has not been posted here before... which may have been... but this is the first one I have seen.

    So... that being said...

    I vote this item is BAN-***DISCONNECTED***
