What in the heck is this?

A box of craft stuff was donated to my work and I found this in it. Anyone know what it is? It's about 16 inches long kind of heavy. The brush hairs feel real.

  • I think it's a woodworking duster. The are a few less ornate ones on Google images.

    Or, I could be completely wrong :D

  • Because it's such a fancy brush, my first guess was Sumi-e, but it's too big for that, so I'm thinking something special. Was someone possibly doing gold-leaf work? You use a brush to remove the excess gold leaf from the piece after application.

    Some type of calligraphy brush maybe? The carving on the handle made me think of that...
