Two 1950s masks with moulded plastic noses
You will either love them or hate them, but you certainly can’t ignore them! Dating from the 1950s these paper masks of a clown and a painted lady have retained great colours and feature moulded plastic noses and eye holes (still intact). They are approximately 20cm (8in) tall and originally had elastic bands to put over the wearer’s ears (now eroded away).
Made in Hong Kong, they probably aren’t usable as originally intended due to their age and fragility, but they would make colourful eye-catching display pieces, and could be easily box-framed.
