Description

The Aztec Mask is one of Troika Pottery’s most iconic pieces. These were produced at the Newlyn pottery from the early 70s.

There are 3 different Aztec Mask designs that can be recognised by looking at the inner side of the faceguard.

  • Type 1 – Straight faceguard
  • Type 2 – Tapered faceguard
  • Type 3 – Square faceguard

There is one further unique and rare addition which is the “Bullet Hole” mask. This is one of the designs about that has bullet holes in the mask.

Their neck base makes this piece easy to topple over so extra care should be taken if displaying them without support.

Measurements: 25cm x 19 cm x 5.5cm
