*Scarce postwar Japanese mask – Marked Japan – Circa 1950’s-early 1960’s.
*Remarkable use of color and design on a basic cardboard mask, much like the diversity found on today’s urban vinyl dunny figures – simple blank objects used as a shared canvas on which modern artists can display their versatility and ability to capture the eye.
*Guaranteed Vintage and Original.
*Size is 8 x 6.5 x 2 inches. Can be worn by child or adult.
*Overall Condition is NEAR MINT with relaxed elastic string. Please note that the inside of this mask at the chin appears to have some make-up on it. In the collection of quality masks from around the world, it is often a note of added authenticity and use if the inside of a mask has some added patina on the inside from actually wear. Not sure, but perhaps someone tried this one on long ago to test it out – maybe as far away as Japan where it was manufactured.
*Sleeper alert – this piece – along with a couple of its variations – would look fantastic framed and under glass hanging on a wall. See the other remarkable variations in our companion offerings.
*Buy with Confidence and Enjoy!
