This is an original costume mascot head for reddy kilowatt. While I don't know the date of manufacture I can tell you it is very very old and aoeaes to predate the updated look that reddy received making him the original design. The helmet is a 14 inch sphere with mesh homes for the eyes and mouth with an addition mesh covered vent home at the top. The nose has a hole which a light bulbs easily threads onto.
The ears are two oarell slots meant to resemble a wall socket. There is a large crack in the back of reddys head which could be fairly easily repaired he is missing one lightning bolt from atop his head and the mesh has come unglued from his mouth. Also, the wooden ring which acts as a support and a mounting point has come unglued and moves freely within the helmet.
Using the glue and tape patterns I have determined that the location it is pictured in is it's mist likely original location and with the ring in this position the helmet functions as intended. There are what appears to be hooks for attaching the head to the rest if the costume present on the interior of the helmets rim as well as additional slits most likely for the same purpose.
I haven't spent much if any time describing who reddy kilowatt is because let's face it. If you don't know who he is your not going to pay this much for his head.
