Silver brushes can be rebristled into the original wooden stocks, providing these are not damaged or cracked. Wooden stocks can be replaced if necessary.
Ivory brushes can normally be rebristled if they have small dowling holes to one end.
Additional repairs such as undenting, repacking, polishing and silversmithing are available upon request, but are not undertaken within the rebristling costs. If your item requires any further restoration, please note this in your order.
We use natural Chinese white bristle (cream) for most brushes, but do offer an option of Nylon upon request.
Once we receive your brush, it is booked in and put on to the workshop for a hole count. This takes approximately 14 days. We will confirm the cost to rebristle your item based on the amount of holes. If you wish to go ahead, we require 50% deposit with written proceed. The delivery from this point is based on work in progress, but as a guide is normally around 16 weeks. A proforma is issued upon completion for the balance, plus postage and goods are despatched when funds are received.
Please note, brushes are undertaken at the customers own risk.
