A fencing mask from the classic BBC sci-fi drama based on John Christopher’s book series, The Tripods (1984 – 1985).
The Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Masters, who patrol the land in giant Tripods. When humans reach the age of 16 they are ‘capped’, placing their minds under the control of the aliens. A group of young friends avoid being capped themselves, and go in search of a group of ‘free men’.
Masks were worn by the men fencing in the grounds of the chateau during season 1. It has a metal mesh mask and is made by Leon Paul of London. There is some rusting on the mask but overall it remains in a very good condition.
