THE VERY BEST!! Complete (reproduction) TypeD 'Bat

Those experienced collectors out there will be fully aware of just how much it cost me to have this very special bespoke TypeD Oxygen Mask built to this exacting specification.

The Mask is an superbly "weathered" reproduction made by the man himself, Stephen Silburn. However that is not the full story, as I also supplied Stephen with the exact green wool barathea material from which he made this mask.

The loom is an original TypeD Loom which came to me from a New Zealand. It was salvaged from an original TypeD Oxygen Mask which sadly was completely beyond repair....mothed to dust and fibres!
The Loom is 100% authentic and still has the rare early pre-war Receivers fitted.

Made by Tony Sach and still IMO the very best reproduction Type 19 Microphone ever produced.....
Once I had word from Stephen that the Mask was ready I sent the Loom down to Tony and Stephen did likewise with the Mask. I had asked Tony to fully assemble the Mask for me so it was not only done correctly, but also to allow Tony to match the "weathering" of the Mic to that of the Mask. Tony even went as far as cording the Loom where required.

So there you have it, I make no apologies for the price of this, a reproduction. You simply will not find better!
