This African mask is considered to be at least 70 years old and it might have been made in the 19th century. If you are interested to determine a more exact age a specialist must be consulted.
According to information from Antique dealers and collectors of masks: a mask older than at least 50 years is interesting for collectors outside Africa.
In African culture age is of less importance.
This mask for sale is showing signs of wear and therefore it is possible that it has once been used in African tribal culture.
