Silver Ventian mask with varigated brown feathers, Marquesa
This is for a Venetian style mask. It is full sized, meaning that it will fit an average sized adult face, and its title is “Marquesa”. The base is papier mache and it has been almost completely encrusted with real lace, to detail the mask. The finish is not paint but silver metal leaf that has been antiqued, to bring out the details and sealed to keep it beautiful. Assorted white rhinestones give additional sparkle. It has an extra wide crown of genuine coque feathers that are naturally variegated in a range of white and browns. I hand-make each mask base and then individually design and hand-cut each one so they are all unique art pieces. The inside is black.
This piece is 9” (23 cm) wide, 6” (15.5 cm) high and around 3” (7.5 cm) deep. The black ribbon ties are 14” (36 cm) long. The feather crown comes out an additional 4” (10 cm). there is a 2" long hanging loop, hidden behind the feather ruff. It is signed and titled on the inside.
Due to the size and shape, you must choose the "Canada Post Large Air box" option for shipping.
It may look fragile, but my masks are quite sturdy, my crafting method means they are more flexible than most Venetian ones, but just as strong. They can be worn with no problems so don't worry about having to take special care of it. Just keep it away from high levels of moisture.
This rich and extravagant mask will suit a man or a woman and make you the talk of the ball! The large feather ruff, that crowns it, hides and alters the wears hair and hairline so it is an especially good disguise. If you are planning on wearing it, and have any concerns about the fit, then please contact me and I'd be happy to give you some more exact measurements.
The heavy lace that makes the ornate edge details around the crown is now completely out of stock! As a result, I can not fill any custom orders for masks with this edge design. Custom options are still possible for this colour combination, but will require different lace/shape choices.
