The brushes look and sound great. I have to admit, when I saw the handles, I thought these were brushes that had been made by someone like Crown and re-branded. I’m actually still not sure if that’s the case? However, looking at their website, I’m taken by quite a few of the brushes particularly the pointy pencil style. I seem to think I read ages ago that Crown brushes are manufactured in the UK. I can’t find anything about where they’re produced, despite googling. I wonder if I have imagined it!
