Some Somerset Simpsons

Post by churchilllafemme »

I just got a few more Somerset Simpson brushes that pretty much complete some sets. Like the others, these will be used in my regular rotation.

First is a Tulip 1 in Super.

Next is a Tulip 2 in 2-Band Super.
Image

Together they complete my Tulip set.
Image

And a Polo 10 in Super.
Image

It fits well in my Polo set.
Image

And finally a Persian Jar 3 in 2-Band Super.
Image

That one complements the others in the set.

John I don't know which impresses me the most, your collection or the fact you use them.

The Nimmer Mill Somersets are my favorites. Stan Archer made some wonderful brushes. No wonder Gary Young is so proud of his heritage. Good show John.

Nice collection John; the Sommerset Best seems to be a different type of feel than the newer Simpsons and much more enjoyable to use, in general. I find mine like the two bands even in sommerset pure.
