French Art Deco African Mask Brooch
French Art Deco silver brooch in the form of a full face mask or portrait of an African woman wearing an ornate headdress and jewellery.
Crafted following the Paris Colonial Exposition of 1931, this is typical of much of the jewellery made to celebrate France's vast empire at that time, much of it in Africa.
Marked on the collar with initials that appear to read either MEK or MHK, neither of which we are able to attribute to a particular maker.
The brooch measures 6.25 cm in length by just a touch over 3.5 cm wide.
