1800s Merryweather Smoke Mask

About

Merryweather helmets were used by British fire brigades from the Victorian era. This is a rare full head smoke rescue helmet/mask. It has a tight fitting shape that closed on the sides with zippers. The eyes are mica. I almost never sell items from my museum collection. Here is your opportunity to get your hands on one of the rarest examples I own. If you are a seasoned collector you already know how rare these are. It's not only a surviving example of the very beginning of gas and rescue Apparatus, it has a striking sculptural presence as well. You will never find another example.
