1930s Theatre Mask
A beautiful and very rare 1930s papier-mache theatre mask of a deer head that looks like it has come straight out of an early twentieth century rendition of a Midsummer Night's Dream. The underside of the muzzle is hinged and is controlled by a spring, opening and closing by the actor's jaw as he speaks, and it is with its original paint. It would make a stunning wall decoration.
