Anyone seen this before?

I bought this at an estate sale recently but I can't find out any information on its origin. It's obviously a mask. (There are holes on vinyl flaps at either side of the lenticular image where an elastic may have once been.) Probably a child's mask. (It's very small. Approx. 4.5" x 3.75"). Other than that though, I don't have any information about it. (There are no identifying markings printed anywhere). Any ideas? How old do you think it might be?

Very cool. Visited Tarrytown once (Sleepy Hollow) and bought some victorian repros of paper masks like that...a sailor and the Devil. VERY cool and creepy when worn...totally distorting even though the lower half of your face is completely visible...tiny eye holes.

awesome posts, man.
