Fitch


Oil on board, 7" x 5"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
SOLD


This is a big old China bristle brush called a scenic or signwriter's fitch. the term "fitch" refers to the flaring angle of the brush hairs, which come from the backs of Chinese hogs. Which means whenever I use it I'm painting high on the hog.
