Bruce Lee's personally used sparring mask
A rare MacGregor mask, personally owned and used by Bruce Lee while sparring. The outer front piece is extremely hard, rigid green plastic with a padded underlayer to cushion even the most fierce blows to the face. The mask has the original leather straps and consists of a full frontal face cover with the original canvas strap which wraps around the back of the head to hold the mask in place when worn. Accompanied by impeccable provenance having been gifted to Herb Jackson directly by Bruce Lee. Jackson was Lee's original back yard student, close friend and confidant, and took an active role in improving Bruce Lee's training equipment. The mask was subsequently gifted to Jackson's son by descent. Included is a letter of authenticity from Herb's son, Mark Ashton-Jackson, who recently parted with a large collection of Bruce Lee memorabilia that he inherited from his father. The mask measures approximately 11 x 9".
