Brush

Description

A long wooden handled brush with black painted bristles. The bristles are shaped into a rounded point at the end. The wooden handle is slightly scratched up by the bristles and has the details of a spindle. It is polished with a old string tied around the neck of the handle so that it can hang up on a hook. There is a etched name that is partially visible and a tear drop shape very small by the top of the handle.
