Cheeky Monkey

Mid-20th Century Theatre Mask
We are proud to offer an unusual example of an English mid-20th Century papier Mache theatre head. In the form of a cheeky monkey, hand made from layered papier Mache and hand painted detail. It is quite crude in its appearance which adds to its decorative charm we believe. It has a built-in mesh vent at the base of the mouth and neck lined velour material.
Approx. in inches: H 13” x W 9” x D 16”
Origin: English
Period: 1940 - 50
Material: Papier Mache
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form. Wear is present through fading of painted surface, weathered areas across the whole item with frayed ears and neck section. This it has obvious period repairs as it is a true used theatre example and natural patination. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
