The peacock patterned fabric of this mask is embellished with lime green and blue sequins, gilded braid, an emerald green jewel and lashings of glitter. Lustrous feathers, including a peacock’s eye, add the finishing touch. Wear it to a party or hang it on the wall for Christmas – 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.
