Item/Description: Vintage ca.1920s-1930s celluloid baby’s hairbrush, decoratively & colorfully hand-painted with the adorable imagery of a rosy-cheeked little girl’s face.
In addition to her vibrantly colorful bubble gum pink “rosier than rosy” cheeks, this darling girl has yellow blonde hair on top of which she is wearing a fashionable 1920s-era cloche style hat that is colored an exquisite shade of Robin’s egg blue.
As if the charming child’s portrait ornamentation that delightfully adorns this precious hair brush weren’t enough to enhance the soothingly lovely ivory-colored brush handle, it is further sweetly embellished with edge piping in a hue of blue that perfectly complements her “bonnie blue” bonnet.
What a delightful addition this baby brush would make to any number of collections. And just imagine the extreme pleasure and appreciation of the gift recipients (perhaps a set of new parents) should you decide to bestow it upon them as a token of your affection and in celebration of a new addition to their family. It will become a cherished keepsake for their “bundle of joy” to treasure forever, and once grown, perhaps even pass on to their future babies!

Age/Period: Vintage - ca 1920s-1930s
Manufacturer/Identification/Markings/Country of Origin: Unknown/Unspecified
Material(s)/Format: Body of hair brush is handpainted celluloid plastic. Bristles are an ultra-soft, unknown material.
Size/Measurements: 5" L
Quantity: One (1)
Condition Summary & Details: Celluloid body remains in excellent condition, exhibiting no nicks, chips, or cracks to any of the plastic. The hand-painted decorative portraiture imagery remains completely intact and retains vivid coloration. There is one tiny paint fleck chip in the blue accent trim portion of the brush, and though the bristles portion of the brush are quite full, lush and ever-so-soft, a portion of the bristles are flattened, laying diagonally rather than straight up (perhaps as a result of the original/previous owner's storage and preservation of this beloved family heirloom).
Regardless of the condition of the bristles, given the exceptional aesthetic appeal of this baby keepsake item, it would so perfectly enhance the decor of any nursery in its capacity as an interior decor display accent as to negate any practical usage limitations, thus remaining highly desirable and collectible.
