Hi, I'm new to this site, just wondering if someone with a bit of experience can identify this mask? Thanks.

Please look for markings on the back. If you have them, it will be much easier to date and identify.

No it doesn't have any markings on it but it has string holes?

Thanks for asking!

Masks are a challenge because there are so many types and kinds--real and those made to look real, but for tourist trade. Sometimes it takes a trained expert to actually see the piece to make a final decision.

There is a website called arttribal.com/.../contact-us

They may be able to offer you some info.

It will help to have the history of the piece that you know readily available--when did you get it? How big (length, width, depth)? They will probably ask for front, back, side photos. What is it made from (wood, metal, plastic, vinyl, etc.)

Post back what you learn! One thing I love about Thrifty Fun is the educational posts remain as legacies so that future searchers can find information!

Thanks for sharing!

I have zilch knowledge about masks but it looks like PGHgirl has given you a link to use and also the information any site will need when you're asking for information as most likely no one will be able to help you with only this picture. You will have to join sites before you can post.

I do have a couple more links that may also be able to help you:
masksoftheworld.com/

Reddit seems to have a lot 'mask' members so you might want to ask your question here also:
