Spectacular antique 1880s goggle-eyed catcher's mask is a real beauty, and a condition rarity.  The mask is constructed entirely of bent wire and clips, a true pre-weld mask.  The condition remains excellent, with only light wear and no dents to the cage.  All the leather pads are still firmly attached, with no holes, tears, exposed horsehair, etc.  All straps are in excellent condition, with no ink writing or other such flaws.  Some light evidence of use is apparent, along with a patina on the wire itself.
