Naso Peste, or the Plague Doctor. A plague doctor was a medical physician who treated victims of the bubonic plague, and wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic items. The masks were designed to protect them from putrid air, which was seen as the cause of infection.

Made of papier mache. Tie ribbon holds it in place. One size fits most.

Our Venetian masks are handmade in Venice, Italy by a family that has been making these masks for a century.
