So named for its upward-curving shape resembling a gondola, this broom is gentle baseboards as it cleans in hard-to-reach places. It's made for us by an Italian family-owned company that has specialized in fine cleaning tools since 1950. Bristles at both ends of the head offers expanded reach for cleaning while protecting furniture and cabinets from scratches. 100% natural hog bristles attract and retain dust for easy cleaning. Ideal for sweeping along baseboards, behind furniture and in narrow spaces. Strong beechwood handle. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
