Blue Crackle Columbina with Blue Tiger Feather Plume Mask
This mask is handmade in Venice, Italy by artisans trained in the centuries-old technique perfected for the Carnevale. Using papier mache, plaster and cloth, the master mask maker creates a wearable piece of art in the finest tradition of Venice.
The masks are designed for wearing, with fabric ties attached, or for display in your home. For display, simply loop some fishing line through the eye holes and hang on a picture hook, or place on a display shelf.
This mask is a traditional Columbina style half mask, intended to obscure only part of the face- ideal for wearing to a party where you might be eating or drinking. The mask is painted with a crackle ivory color on the cheeks, blue with gold curliques on the eyebrows and the nose, trimmed with gold brocade and has a small gold crest between the eyes. The plume of feathers are a variety of shades of blue, always including some striped and some solid colors.
Be daring, be outrageous, be swept away in the romantic elegance of Venice! Item may not be in stock in our store so please add 3 days for delivery time.
Mask measures 7" wide by 4" high, plus an additional 12-14" for the plume of feathers.
