Title

Fencing Mask with Quilted Cowl

Subject

Fencing Mask

Description

Fencing mask, possibly for the practice of single stick. The bib, padded ring around the perimeter of the face, and cowl around the neck and back of the head is made from a single piece of quilted canvas. Rim around the face is heavily padded and tied to the mask's mesh with twine.

Tighter weave of mesh on the face, looser weave for the top and back of head. On the inside of the mask, horsehair padding under suede leather on the temples and straw padding on the top of the head [conserved with a circle of muslin to prevent further deterioration]. No metal tongue; affixed to the wearer's head by a belted strap attached to the mask approximately at the ears.
