Venetian Mask Plague Doctor Mask with Drawing of Doctor Itself
This mask was designed to isolate the face allowing breathing. In fact, the beak served as an air filter, in which perfumed essences such as mint or lavender, usually soaked in vinegar, were inserted. Given the relevance in the collective imagination and for what it represented, this mask certainly could not be missed among the masks of the Venice carnival.
This Plague Doctor Mask, also available in the classic version, is decorated entirely by hand by expert decorators according to the most traditional and ancient technique of Venetian masks. 100% Made in Italy certificate.
Our products are unique handmade pieces therefore all the images are indicative, as well as the measurements and colours that may be subject to variations.
Linda Mendoza –
What a wonderful and flawless experience I had with my first purchase from Venezia Maschere. I purchased the paper mache Plague Doctor. Delivery was very fast and the mask arrived in perfect condition. This mask will proudly hang with another Venetian paper mache mask I bought in 1984 on my first trip to Italy. The new mask came with a certificate of authenticity and even a thoughtful thank you gift. Many thanks! Linda Mendoza (Pacifica, California) P.S. I enjoyed your YouTube videos as well.
