Small child's ' Mickey Mouse ' gasmask.
More commonly known as the' Mickey Mouse ' gasmask because of it's bright colours and appearance the Small Child's Respirator was designed for young children below the age of 5. It's design was an attempt to make the mask less intimidating for children than the standard mask.
This particular mask made by ' JB 63 ' in 1940 is clean,supple,with
all elastics intact. Box is lightly worn with slight rusting to staples with carrying strap knoted to rejoin. Accompanying leaflet is lightly creased but clean and intact. As good an example as you are likely to find.
