Brand new & in box (one in photo shown is mine) Nylon & Boar Bristle Brush Only the finest, premium-grade boar bristle, which is gentle to the hair and scalp, is used. Brushing with a MP hair brush is the best way to distribute the natural oils while exfoliating the scalp & stimulating circulation of the hair follicles. Handmade in England. Animals are not harmed in the collection of the boar bristle. Nylon cleaning brush is included. Approx. $263 with taxes so this is priced very reasonably.
