RAF Silver Hair Brush - Click for the bigger picture

RAF Silver Hair Brush

A fine example with engine turned top which features a finely engraved RAF Pilot's wing, surmounted by a Kings Crown to one corner. The silver is fully hallmarked with anchor, lion and is date coded P. It also carries a somewhat indistinct makers mark reading W.G.S Ltd who we have traced to W.G.Sothers Ltd of Birmingham who were first registered in July 1920 and operated until 1955. The 'P' manufacturers coding dates the brush to 1939. The wooden bristle board is also stamped Made in England. Sadly we have no provenance with this item although being solid silver it was clearly a quality item in its day and must have served throughout WWII. Despite its 76 years it is in top condition and whilst on offer as a collectors item it could just as well be used for its intended purpose. Measures 4.25" (11 cm.)
