Shaving Brush Set
Beard or no beard, the hipster in your life will thank you every time he reaches for your brush and bowl to enjoy his morning ritual of a fully-fledged wet shave. And he gets a dashingly handsome vintage ex British Museum archive box to store all his grooming bits and bobs in too.
Prices start at £16 for the box only - make your choice by clicking in the box below. The completed boxed set as pictured is £48 and includes:
Our A G Hendy & Co branded boxes will make your gift that extra special. Constructed from vulcanized cardboard with an internal aluminium frame and rivets for extra rigidity, they were originally made for the British Museum in the 1950s to be used as archive boxes. Never used, they were recently discovered in a forgotten store room belonging to the museum. Their ox-blood colour and heavy-duty construction reflect our hardware store aesthetic, which makes them the perfect container for that special A G Hendy & Co gift. Once unpacked, the box offers further very useful storage solutions for today’s office and home. Each box is labelled on the underside of its lid with Hendy’s Original British Museum Archive Box c.1950 printed on our hallmark oval sticker.
Shaving brush £16
A traditional wet-shave brush with a thick tuft of soft boar hair set in a black-stained beech wood handle. Boar hairs are similar to badger, tapered at the tip, which assist in creating the perfect soapy lather. Length 12.5cm
Shaving bowl £16.50
Our white enamel shaving bowl has a black rim and is deep enough to help kick-up a thick, slick lather. Diameter 11cm
