A small antique brush used to keep a lady's hand warmer (qv muff) presentable.
"Every well dressed woman at the end of the nineteenth century would have had a muff, to keep her hands warm in during the winter, and she'd have used her muff brush to give her little muff a little dusting over." Tim Wonnacott, BBC Bargain Hunt, Series 26 Episode 8 Derby, 19 May 2010.
