Three Early Industrial Masks

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a nice small collection of unique Primitive and early safety helmets.
There is a welding mask, a painting or sand blasting mask with a connection for oxygen and possibly a Bee keepers mask. The bee keepers helmet on canvas with a tieback and has a French Foreign Legion look. The two other helmets are made from suede. I always thought go this type of helmet ad industries tribal art.
The make a very interesting and impressive display together. The three are sold as a collection.
