European Theater Mask

Q: Any idea where this is from? I inherited it from an uncle who had it in the 1950’s. He was a frequent visitor to Paris and I suspect he bought it at the Flea Market there. It is 15″ tall to the top of the ears (which look like some kind of leather).

A:  This mask looks very similar to masks that I’ve seen from Austrian Alps.  Looking at the back of this mask, it looks like it might have been used in a theater performance or dance celebration.  I’m not certain of this mask’s origin, if you have any suggestions please leave a comment below.  A
