- Quantity Available: 1
Four old face masks - one is a bull, one is a clown's face, one a Chinese Coolie face, one just a face. They are complete faces, not half masks, and they all have signs of age and storage (folding presents a few problems). However, they could all be restored fairly easily with tape and paint. To go through them:
The Bull has tears - two one one side of his face, and a few underneath and around the chin.
The Clown has a couple of small tears around the chin, but over all is very good - he has green and red straw hair, and eyelids that can be blinked by pulling rather crude strings through his cheeks. He has been folded, and needs steaming out.
The Face has small tears at the sides, but overall is very good - again, having been folded, it needs steaming or similar.
The Chinese Coolie has damage to the chin, sides and one eye. He has a marvellous hat with a rosette. Also a victim of folding.
Quite unique carnival masks.
