This original Venetian costume mask from Venice is decorated with antique crackling and black paint. The plague doctor mask is the distinctive because of its long nose.
The origins of the mask from the plague doctor certainly date back to times of plague in bygone ages when doctors would protect themselves from the plague, by wearing a mask, whilst they treated their suffering patients. In those days, the nose of the plague doctor mask included a filter with a mixture based on salt and aromatic plants.
The plague doctor mask has two straps and can be perfectly worn for a costume party, Mardi Gras and Halloween but it would also be a great mask for your wall.
