The entire surface of this golden mask twinkles and flashes with rows of elongated and round sequins, glitter and gold braid. Untroubled by the concept of gilding the lily, the mask is finished with lustrous feathers and golden, glittery ferns held in place by an amber coloured jewel. Wear it to a party (not recommended for wallflowers) or use it as a Christmas decoration – ideally both!

The traditional Venetian silhouette of this mask has a fascinating history. The furrowed brow and beak-like nose evolved from the masks once worn by plague doctors to protect themselves from illness. Originally the exaggerated nose of the mask would have been stuffed with scented posies to protect the wearer. The form has become stylised and strangely compelling.

Please note this is for dressing up or to use as a Christmas decoration, it is not a toy.
