This broom is a perfect size to fit on any fireplace hearth. The handle is made from a maple sapling that Mother Nature lovingly wrapped a honeysuckle vine around in a beautiful spiral pattern. The sweep is made from broom corn that was harvested in the picturesque valley of Sandy Mush, North Carolina. It's truly a conversation piece yet it's meant to be used. The broom maker will even replace the sweep should you ever wear it out.
