Each hand finished mask might vary in decoration, adornments and style. This is an elegant Colombina Piume Velluto Venetian mask. The mask is black and gold with black and ochre (brown) feathers. The black part of the mask is over the eyes and down the nose and the gold is under the eyes. The two colors are separated by a gold loop-chain ribbon and the mask is edged with a brighter gold ribbon. In the middle of the forehead there is a decorative piece with a gold gem in the middle. Behind the centre there is a cluster of small black feathers with the large ochre ostrich feathers behind. This mask is unisex and would suit a man or womans fancy dress costume. It would be perfect to wear at a New Years masquerade party.
