1930 Black Memorabilia Porter and Mammy Clothes Brushes
$85.00 each except for 4.5" Mammy=$60

This charming grouping of vintage, wooden, Black Porter and Mammy clothes brushes were all made in the 1930's and 1940's by the Rhody Brush Company of Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

All five of these colorful brushes have natural bristles, and range in height from 7.5 inches and 8 inches tall to the small, 4.5 inches tall, green-dressed Mammy brush.

The porter brushes are in near excellent condition with evidence of having been very lightly used as described:


Blue Porter with Cream colored pants: teeny, superficial "dings" to paint here and there with one teeny mark between the eyes.
Blue Porter with Yellow Pants: SORRY SOLD
Black and Cream Porter: teeny, superficial "dings" to paint here and there with one teeny mark near the mouth; paint wear to edges of cap.
Yellow Porter: paint wear primarily to right side of face and top of cap.
Red Mammy: brush has seen a little more use than the others(see photos)- very minor paint wear from use to Mammy's back. Black paint drip to collar area. Natural bristles dyed red.
Green Mammy: green cap and blouse, small= 4.5" tall --in very good condition with exception to paint striation on face (close-up photo makes this appear more prominent than what is seen with the eye).

Please note that many of the white spots seen in the photos are light reflections and are NOT areas of missing paint. If one looks closely, the teeny areas of missing paint are able to be distinguished from the light reflections.

The taller brushes are all priced at $85 each. The small, 4.5" tall, green-dressed mammy brush is priced at $60.
