Size 5 Vintage Grumbacher Fine Pure Red Sable, Series 815
New old stock (NOS) from the 1960s or 70s. Never used - no longer manufactured. These short-handled, Kolinsky red sable watercolor brushes were made before the fall of the USSR. Many artists feel that the quality of sable has declined since then, and the older brushes are higher in quality than anything being manufactured today. Handmade in Ireland. Nickel ferrules, Lacquered red and white handles.
