A question from a buyer: Dear ntr(nwu),The pictures of the base show what appear to be cracks in the material. Are there cracks in the brush handle? Reply: Thanks for inquiry. The listing states that the handle has no cracks. I have seen this type of surface checking or patina many times on vintage/antique catalin. The brush was just refurbished in July by Simpsons (as shown by the invoice), and I believe Mark Watterson and his team will only work on pieces that are structurally sound. I hope this helps.
