Hand Made Luxury Shaving accessories by Rodney Neep

ROMAN VASE
SHAVING BRUSHES

Inspired by a real Roman vase made in alabaster, I have created a shaving brush to a similar shape but made in Steatite, a natural stone which I import from Kenya. Each brush will be slightly different, but to a similar basic shape.

Each of the Roman Vase brushes will have a real Roman coin inset into the base

 


Prices:

All with Extra Silvertip Badger knots

Resin handle without a coin 100
Resin handle with bronze Roman coin 135
Resin handle with Silver Roman coin 160
Stone handle with bronze Roman coin 140
Stone handle with Silver Roman coin 165

I am happy to make one to special order in any resin or stone. Knot loft of your choice. Email me: brushmaker@pensoftheforest.co.uk

 

 
Above: Silver Antoniniansis 138-161 AD 
A silver coin adds quite a bit to the price.


Above: Bronze Maximinus II 305-313 AD

Note that most Roman coins are not precisely round. Coins will come in various sizes, but I will use those between 15 and 22mm diameter.
