Hi I am Tony kishawi here thank you for your interest in Set of Seven Commedia dell’ Arte Masks. I am holding here the original leather mask that was made by Steve Novak and this mask set of mask have been in our company for over 13 years .We find these to be wonderful spirited mask Whoever the wearer might be they seem to be able to capture that spirit that comes from the mask .So I spoke to Steve Novak about making some rubber latex versions ,so we have made these replicas because they are more accessible they are cheaper obviously than leather and we have tried to make them look as leather as possible ,so that it keeps that authenticity and we have tried to make them successful mask of for the student or for the drama room.
Each mask have got adjustable strap so when you have got many people trying on the same mask they are easily adjusted we make the eye holes little bit bigger so students don’t complain it is sticking in my eye so on and so forth .We want students to have successful experience when they are putting on the mask. So we actually put them into a packing box here you’ll get this in the mail which is the standard post-box here but we mostly put a saddle inside the box for storage so that when you actually put the masks away in storage you’ll see that they sit over this raised area which allows the rubber latex to keep it shape .Here we have Pantalone the miserly man his latest addition.
We have always had a set of seven masks but Bentley O’Toole is now our mask maker is continuing making these rubber latex masks he added his own style to give it that leather authentic look and Pantalone has been given in the sill of untidy old man look for Pantalone ,you find that the students love playing this miserly old man they are stopping by hope you like our commedia dell’arte masks..
