April Showers - Part Three


Victorian English Fireplace Brush in Brass Retractable Floral-Embossed Sheath (LEO Design)


In honor of the Spring, we are sharing some of our florally-inspired items over the next several days.  Enjoy the season—including the flowers which delightfully distinguish the Spring.

The Victorians had a tool—or an implement—for every conceivable need.  Tidying-up the fireplace was no exception.  And they found a way to do it with stye and class!  This Victorian English horsehair fireplace brush is housed in a retractable brass "sleeve"—embellished with Springtime flowers and scrolling foliage.  Between uses, the brush can be pulled-back into the sleeve and the brush can stand (tenuously) or hung until the next use.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it,

More Springtime flowers tomorrow and in the days to come.
