Nineteenth century visitors to the spa town of Tunbridge Wells were spoilt for choice with a myriad of inlaid objects fashioned from Tunbridge Ware. Many were just keepsakes but some, such as this clothes brush, were designed for everyday use. Fashioned from fruitwood with a 'tumbling dice' decorated back, this real bristle brush would have been an essential item in any Victorian household.
