Silver coloured cast metal mannequin head with small circular mouth hole that is internally connected to a 7 mm diameter copper nozzle which protrudes 50 mm from the base of the back of the cranium above the neck. The short neck is flanged to form a flat circular bench mounting with a bolt hole at the front and the back. This flange has remnant green paint.
Possibly made by the Maribyrnong Munitions Works, Victoria, and used by the works to test the effectiveness of respirator gas masks.
