Hatter's Advertising Brush
A good-looking hatter's advertising brush made from beech wood and twin-tone horsehair, arranged like a zebra's mane. The brush bears the proprietors name and address "James Stewart, Hatter, 142, Argyle St, Glasgow", and was probably given away to regular customers. A fine decorative object, yet still also an object of use - it could be used as crumb brush, or for its original purpose, to brush hats .
