Original WW2 Childs Gas Mask

Item ID: 2459 | Category: Antique And Vintage

Made for two to five year old children this quirky red and blue mask dates from World War II. Despite looking nothing like the Disney character, it was known as the 'Mickey Mouse' mask. The bright colour & friendly name encouraged small children to be less afraid of using it. It also had the added novelty of a ‘raspberry blowing’ rubber flap. The mask comes with a lovingly handmade leather pouch bag.
