Plague Doctor Half-Mask

Bird-like beak mask was commonly used in France and Italy in the 17th century, often filled with sweet or strong smelling substances (commonly lavender). The mask had glass openings in the eyes and a curved beak shaped like a bird's beak with straps that held the beak in front of the doctor's nose. The mask had two small nose holes and was a type of respirator which contained aromatic items. The beak could hold dried flowers (including roses and carnations), herbs (including eucalyptus, peppermint), spices, camphor, or a vinegar sponge. The purpose of the mask was to keep away bad smells, known as miasma, which were thought to be the principal cause of the disease before it was disproved by germ theory. Doctors believed the herbs would counter the "evil" smells of the plague and prevent them from becoming infected.

  • Product is made with environment-friendly 100% latex and leather.
  • Adjustable leather strap allows you fit the mask to your preference.
  • The mask is breathable and durable for any type of occasion.
