London Gothic

A Plague Doctor is a historical figure based on physicians who treated victims of the bubonic plague.
In the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic items. The masks were designed to protect them from putrid air, which (according to the miasmatic theory of disease) was seen as the cause of infection. The design of these clothes has been attributed to Charles de Lorme, the chief physician to Louis XIII.

Each figure in the range is between 60mm and 70mm in size. They are made from English pewter and hand painted in the UK.
