Painting and Decorating Tools

A collection of painting and decorating tools from Wolverhampton. The collection includes a book of gold leaf, a book of sign writer’s letters a wide brush and a roller tool. The collection also features a newspaper cutting titled 'dearer than gold'. It talks about the use of sable hair which makes the 'best brushes in the world' but it’s also very expensive with a price that was 'twice as dear as gold'.
