Years ago, when we lived in a place with many walls, one of them was covered with Art Deco to Modernist face masks. If we do say so ourselves, it was quite an impactful jaw-dropping vision to which most who saw it could only utter one word...'Wow'. (We assume it was a good impressed 'wow', not the 'wow-you've lost your minds' kind.
The wall is gone. The masks were sold off to happy buyers and we moved to a smaller place with few walls. But we still love masks and this one is especially nice.
Made in Italy by Bassano (or IN Bassano), this porcelain beauty is hand-painted with gold lips and flower, sweeping teal blue hair with gold accents, and she has a perfectly chiseled face with just the right amount of blush on her cheeks.
Mask measures 7 inches across at the widest by 9 1/2 inches high. The back has its original sticker...BASSANO - DECORATO A MANO - MADE IN ITALY. Just as we were about to write this up we noticed a tiny fleck of gold paint off the left lower edge. You can see it in the close-up but we just did a mini touch up so you can't really see it in person unless you know to look for it.
Overall, this Art Deco style lady face mask is in great condition. There's no crazing, cracks, or notable chips. (That purple ribbon can be replaced with something less obvious...there's a loop on the back for your hanger-upper.) We hope you have a wall.
