Whisk Broom

I found this whisk broom at a flea market a couple of years ago. It’s made in the 1920s and I’m still using it today. For something with no other purpose than to sweep away dirt, I’m amazed at the craftsmanship that went into it — it’s durable, with sturdy bristles that don’t snap or fray, that are bound neatly and tightly with twine and metal wire.
