1930s Vintage Fencing Mask by Leon Paul


  • Green Gift
  • Worldwide Shipping

A handcrafted late 1930s vintage fencing mask made by Leon Paul. A great amount of wear throughout makes this a wonderful decorative piece. The mask has a sewn-in label featuring the original shop location, 'Leon Paul, 18 Mounmouth Street, London, WC2'. This shop was heavily bombed by the German army in 1941, and subsequently relocated.

Leon Paul was born in France and trained to become a master of Fencing in the French Army. After WW1 he moved to England and opened the first Leon Paul shop in 1921. Leon Paul are still in business today in London as a premier supplier of fencing equipment. Fun fact: Leon Paul trained Bob Anderson, who would later go on to become a fight director in major films like Lord of the Rings, the Princess Bride, Die Another Day, and Star Wars, where he played Darth Vader during lightsaber duels.

I purchased some lovely medical engravings from this vendor, and the experience was excellent. Alexandra communicated promptly, held several items for me while I made a final decision on which to purchase, and provided a shipping option that was secure and well priced. I would happily purchase from here again.

Alexandra is a wonderful dealer, responding to emails, checking in on the process, ensuring that everything is going as planned. I'll be keeping a close eye on Houselore's new treasures and hope to be buying from Alexandra again.
