Subject:copper mask
Posted By: david Sun, Sep 10, 2017 IP: 2607:fea8:1d5f:fe45:

Hello, Can someone please tell me how old this copper mask might be? NOTE: Notice the old repairs on the verso! Any assistance with this query would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.

I believe your mask is bronze and from the Kindom of Bamum in west Africa. Note the ears, eyes and smile. I think the British have been there for hundreds of years, so it could be very old or new. It may be worth taking to an expert to check out. Hope that helps with a good starting point.
