The story of the plague doctors is a fascinating one. During the plague in Europe, many men served as doctors. Most had no medical experience. Often they wore a mask with a long beak like nose-piece. The mask held healing herbs in the nose to protect the wearer from the disease. Sadly, most of these men died anyway. The mask looks very menacing to me...stark. This one has an overhead strap that can be adjusted with a buckle in the back. It is all hand sewn. It has rivets for shaping and accents.
