Prices start at £78.50. Make your choice by clicking in the box below. The completed boxed set as pictured is £113 and includes, from left to right:

Vintage archive box £26

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 Constructed from vulcanized cardboard with an internal aluminium frame and rivets for extra rigidity, they were originally made for a well-known central London museum in the 1950s to be used as archive boxes.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. Once unpacked, the box offers further very useful storage solutions for today’s office and home. 

Jamb duster £16.00

Our jamb duster - the traditional name for a decorator's dusting brush - is made from rubber tree wood and pure pig bristle. It is used for dusting down surfaces and is adept at reaching into the corners and channels of window frames, skirting and picture rails.  It also works as an excellent all-purpose household brush and, even, as the perfect gentleman's neck brush. Length 19cm

Handmade dusting brush £38

A highly tactile brush sporting a pom-pom of soft goat's hair that is hand tufted onto a turned pear wood handle.  This brush is ideal for all your extra delicate dusting needs, such as around ornaments, glass and delicate light fittings, such as chandeliers.  It is a beautiful brush, and you may not want to use it but simply hang it up by its leather strap and give it an occasional fondle.  The small spot of black goat's hair gives it its name. Length 34cm

Hand brush £26

This elegant beech and horsehair brush will deal with all your more up-market brushing needs. It makes an excellent crumb brush for the dinner table, and it also serves well as a car valet brush, for dusting the dashboard, internal surfaces and upholstery - and can easily be stowed away in the glove compartment.  Length 28cm

Mushroom brush £8.50

The polished beech wood handle provides a comfortable grip and the soft horsehair bristles are just-the-job for brushing your woodland mushrooms free of dirt.  And even better, it resembles a little button mushroom.  The ideal present for the fungi forager. Height 5.5cm
