Description

This is a classical plague doctor's hat, modeled after the engraving by Paul Fürst done in 1656. It is part of the historical plague doctor's costume, and is designed to accompany our various plague doctor masks, which we have listed for sale separately. It comes in two sizes. The Medium/Large size should fit most adults. We've made it rather large as it is to be worn over a mask, a balaclava or hood, and perhaps a cowl. Inside circumference of crown measures 24". If your head circumference is larger than about 23 ½" we offer the hat in XL size for an additional $15 where the circumference of crown measures 25½".

The hat is made from full grain vegetable tanned cowhide. There is a spring steel wire sewn into the edge of the brim to help hold its shape. The crown has been wet-formed over a custom built hat block, and flares out at the top. It has been coated with a stiffener to keep its shape. The hat comes with a soft leather sweatband and on the inside top is a portrayal of the Fürst engraving. It is painted black with flexible acrylic latex paint. The hat comes with a removable, adjustable chin strap.

Must-have. I wonder if I should have gotten the large, even though my skull has a perimeter of 24." It was a little loose on my head. I might order the large at some point before next Halloween and see which is better.

Good quality hat that is able to fit my large head. Only regret is not finding the costume bundle before my series of purchases-but that ones on me. Love the work TomBanwell!

The hat fits great. The hat had a little extra room to fit the mask and robe hood.

Additional policies

CARING FOR YOUR MASK
The leather masks are quite durable. When storing them, keep them in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. The worst enemy is water, as the masks will soften and distort when wet, so don't wear them in the rain, in the pool, or in the shower. Heat will dry them out and make the leather crack. No regular maintenance is required. If they become soiled, wipe with a soft cloth.
