Antique Crumb Brush Butler Silver Plated Hallmarked. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
This rolling crumb brush is made of, what I think is, cast iron or some other heavy metal with an engraved and curved silver-plated top, and a wooden painted handle. It rolls to brush up crumbs and works very well, especially on lint or hair. Could be a clothes brush.
The engraving on the silver is lovely with a scene of trees, sky, clouds, and birds, and very intricate styling. It shines up very nicely and not any pitting or discoloration, or plate loss, on front. The inside back has some discoloration. Some paint loss to handle and cast iron. Please enlarge photos for further description of cosmetics, but it’s in very nice shape for a vintage piece. The handle is tight.
It is marked ‘Made in England’ with a hallmark of JK in a lozenge or diamond, and marked ‘Silver Plate.’ I’m guessing it’s Victorian as it looks to be that style. It is small, measures 5 3/4 inches like a dresser piece. Handle measures 3 inches. Even the cast iron is pretty and has a patterned surface. The rubber wheels are smooth and not dried out. The brush is firm and turns freely. Very pretty display piece with functionality!
