Niall O Glacain, also known as Nellanus Glacanus, was an Irish physician active in Italy, France and Spain during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. He is one of the better known Plague Doctors active during the period and wrote the definitive treatise on the topic of treating and dealing with the bubonic Plague. As such, it is only appropriate that this mask carries his name.

This is the long version of my Plague Doctor mask, I have offered these as custom order items for a few years, but recently decided to offer them as a stock made to order item.

These masks both fit the same and use the same materials as the standard Paracelsus Plague Doctor mask I offer, the notable difference is the longer "beak". While the Paracelsus is slightly over 8" in overall length, the Glacanus adds another approximate 4" of length giving a total length of roughly 12" (please note, this measurement is an estimate, slight differences in shaping may cause a slight decrease in length).

Each mask is made of 5-6oz vegetable tanned leather, and comes in your choice of black or brown (other colors may be available at a slightly higher cost) with the choice of either solid brass or nickel plated hardware. Each mask is stitched in black and capped off with gray tinted lenses.

Like all of my masks, these are made to fit up to a 23" head measurement, if you need a slightly larger mask, simply let me know and I will make adjustments as needed at no extra cost.

Again, these are made to order items. I try to keep my turnaround time well below the 2-3 weeks time frame, but weather conditions (which effect drying times) as well as a backlog in my custom order list may cause an item to run its full time frame before shipping. If you are in a time crunch I do offer a rush option for an extra $50, please contact me for details.

*Photo 3 is for size reference only, the longer mask featured has both a custom finish as well as some design changes. For custom finishes, thread options other than black, antiqued hardware, or other changes, please contact me for details and costs.
