— This was made by my grandfather, when he was already very old, when he was no longer able to do certain things but was still able to do some stuff. He still had a passion for DIY. But he didn't have much strength. This is one of his typical household improvement jobs. This is from a brush, one of very high quality, German, good plastic, and good bristles (...) It looks like that at some point its handle broke, or maybe he deliberately sawed it off so that old people didn't have to bend over quite so much when cleaning the bath. He added this handle, made it longer, and turned the brush over. The brush's previous handle he then used to stabilize the new handle, made from iron and ebonite. It looks like this iron strip here was taken from something else because there are extra holes here. They weren't drilled especially for this. And these ordinary nuts, rusted from the water, as it stayed in water for a long time. The rust also played its part in cleaning the bath. So the head of this brush was screwed onto this handle, which ends in some thoroughly sanded ebonite, held on with these rivets here. This ebonite handle looks like a hamburger, since in the middle, you see, this iron bit stretches out from the brush part, and it has these metal strips on it, and then on the two sides there's this ebonite which granddad used in a lot of his DIY projects (...) They're not the kind of things you can find readily available in the shops, and they're not that much cheaper to make yourself. He just wanted to make these things that we needed himself.
