SOLD: Rooney Stubby 1 Horn Heritage Super + Rooney Boar

Post by churchilllafemme » Fri Feb 22, 2019 4:57 pm

This is a rare vintage Rooney Stubby 1 with Heritage hair and a genuine horn handle. The knot is 24mm/55mm, densely packed and with plenty of backbone and tips that are soft but have a very slight scritch. It holds and releases lather very well. The handle has a very small ding at the bottom edge, which I have tried to show clearly in the last two images. I don't remember hitting it on anything, so I don't know how it happened. It is stable, and I think it just adds character to the brush. NB: Don't be misled by its label as a Stubby 1; look at the last image below, and you'll see that it actually is the size of a regular Stubby 2.

Buy the Stubby and I'll toss in a vintage 1940 Rooney Broad Arrow Black Boar wooden handles brush for free. $200 shipped CONUS. SOLD

Added image to show its true size, which is equivalent to a regular Stubby 2.
