Pair of Burgundundian Fencing Masks circa 1920
This pair of 1920's fencing masks come from an estate in the wine village of Nuits Saint-Georges in Burgundy. They are very rich, trimmed in dark leather with a cloth bib. There is some loss to the widest leather bands, but overall they are in excellent condition for their age and they have a patina which is better than any other fencing masks I've seen. For many years these were in our home in Beaune, and I displayed them on the tall hat stands also for sale today. Note the price is for the masks only; hat stands sold separately.
