Alan Bean‘s personally-owned and -used paint brush, approximately 13″ long, signed on the handle in black ink by Bean. Nicely matted and framed with a photo of Bean on the lunar surface, an Apollo 12 patch, and a small descriptive plaque to an overall size of 18.75 x 23.25. In fine condition, with expected paint to the brush consistent with use. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Novaspace which reads, in part: “This brush was used by Apollo 12 astronaut/artist Alan Bean in the execution of several of his paintings. The used brushes are inspected by the artist, and signed on the shaft.” Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
