An incredibly cool antique paper bat mask with provenance. The mask and accompanying note were found in a scrapbook dated 1921 (unfortunately I do not possess the scrapbook).

The note reads: "You are asked to become a member of the Black Bat Sorority. Please signify your acceptance by coming to room II Senior House at 6:45 Tuesday night."

There is a little drawing of a bat on the note as well! :)

I don't know about you, but the Black Bat Sorority sounds awesome, and I totally want to be a member.

+++ Measurements +++

The mask is approximately 12" x 5"

+++ Condition +++

The condition of the mask is good, with some folds and wrinkles. It is a thick paper, almost like construction paper, but maybe a little thicker.
It would be best for display, and I think it would very cool in a frame with the note.

+++ Please read +++
