String Doll Keychain - Plague Doctor, Thailand
|Availability:||In stock (4)|
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 - they 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.
One 2"-3" string doll character with a double-sided fabric tag and lobster claw keyring. Handmade in Thailand, each string doll has their own special power that is always positive and helpful. They are fun for the whole family and make a perfect gift.
