A Dandy Duck clothes brush from the 1950s. The duck's head and neck form the handle of the brush which has been injection moulded in cellulose acetate with painted features. This fits into the low-density polyethylene (LDPE) body, injection moulded with a black and white marbled effect to replicate the feathers on the back of the bird. The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base has an egg-shaped depresion beneath the duck but no examples of this object have been known to exist complete with egg. It is more likely that this concave groove assists with the brush lifting in/out. The bristles are boar hair. Made in the UK, this Dandy Duck was probably manufactured by Versabrush, later to become Hughes Brushes Ltd, Slough.
