Plague Doctor Masquerade Mask

The Medico Della Peste (plague doctor) with its long beak is one of the most bizarre and recognisable of the Venetian masks. The striking design has a macabre history originating from 17th century French physician Charles de Lorme who adopted the mask together with other sanitary precautions while treating plague victims.

The mask is white consisting of a hollow beak and round eye holes covered with crystal discs creating a bespectacled effect & looks very strange
