Early Blue Ticking Farmhouse Fabric Primitive Whisk Broom Brush
This next offering compliments the Starch Box Gathering, I have in another listing, quite nicely as these pieces are shown in the box. I will combine freight if you choose to purchase the starch box as well.
This gathering includes a generous amount of early blue ticking along with two brooms that would also look great hung from a shaker peg or cupboard door.
The larger utility brush has the most wonderful oxblood red paint on the handle and looks amazing. The wear on this handle could not be better and is a primitive lovers dream come true! Horsehair bristles used for strength and durability really make this brush, used for cleaning, a tried and true piece of honest hard work done by the "huswife". A number "8" appears to be incised on the back.
The whisk broom boasting brown sorghum was woven with turkey red nylon thread to keep the straw ~ like material in place. It is wire wrapped with a metal cap at the top equipped with a small hanger. I added some string so the whisk broom could be hung directly from the utility brush and both look awesome hanging in front of the ticking which adds color and smooth texture to the overall look.
The ticking is in fair condition with some worn places in the fabric that are almost see though as shown in image 6. There are several dark age spots sprinkled randomly throughout. The colors are strong and are not faded. The deep cornflower blues and soft nutmeg browns are a fantastic mix of color choices set against a buttermilk ground that offer an exciting primitive palette, indeed! There are no offensive odors present. This fabric would also look incredibly at home folded in a cupboard.
This pleasing Farmhouse Gathering is a perfect fit for display on a chimney cupboard door or even in the "Necessary Room", a.k.a. Bathroom and promises to add primitive ambiance to your homestead! Enjoy!
