We found this beautiful 8 1/2" high leather mask, made from a single piece of leather, at an estate sale some time ago. We recently received several emails from a nice eBayer, informing us that we were selling it way too low, that is was in fact a one of a kind, Zimbabwe mask, similar to one they had bought some years ago for about $250. That was all they could tell us, and we have not been able to verify that information from any other source.
HELP!! Do any of you recognize this artwork, as to region, or tribe? Do you know how we might find out more about it, without spending any money to get it appraised?
