Unger Bros Cupid Sterling Silver Repousse Hair Brush

Lot 0002 Details

Description
Known for their strong Art Nouveau repousse designs, the Unger Brothers became one of the premier and most well-know American manufacturers of sterling silver jewelry and objects. Born to a family that immigrated from Germany, the Unger Brothers established their business in Newark, NJ and began producing sterling silver jewelry in 1878. They specialized in manufacturing jewelry, glass cutting and silversmithing and in addition to jewelry, produced numerous other items including brushes, hand mirrors, combs, and powder boxes with repousse silver lids.

This beautiful hair brush is a classic example of the Unger Bros. art form. The piece, which is from the Victorian (ca1895) era, depicts a gorgeous repousse image of two adorable cupids surrounded by flowers and scrolled detail. The border of the hair brush has a lovely embossed scrolled design which carries onto the handle. The surface of the silver has a beautiful patina which adds to the richness of the color of the silver. On the side of the brush are the marks "STERLING 925 FINE" with the signature Unger Bros. hallmark "UB" on each side. It's an absolutely fantastic brush and a must have for any Unger Brothers collector!

The brush measures 8 1/2" in length, just under 3" at the widest point and is about 1/2" at the thickest point.

The overall condition of the brush is excellent. There are a few minor dents in the silver which does not at all take away from the beauty of the piece and is not unusual for a silver piece from this era. The bristles are missing a few in the middle of the brush, the plate on which they are attached is slightly loose. There is a monogram HNB.
