Long wooden handle brush with painted bristles. The bristles are a tan color but the ends are slightly blackened. The handle is scratched up by the bristles and has black marks going all the way up the handle. The handle has a spindle look to it and looks to have been stained at one point. The handle has a few inscriptions on it.
