The Plague Doctor

Contains: one 2”–3” String Doll character with a double-sided fabric nametag, keyring, and lobster claw. "The Plague Doctor keeps you away from all things contagious." Based on drawings of 17th century witnesses to the bubonic plague in England, the Plague Doctor looks scary but had an important role in society - he kept track of casualties, assisted in autopsies, and acted as the witness for wills for the dead and dying. The mask with its beak-like nose was designed to be filled with herbs and other organic material that would ward off germs.
