Product Code: AU0342
Blackened silver Duchess Masquerade mask carnival character on stand.
Add the final flourishes to your home interior space with the Authentic Models The Duchess of Malfi.
Depicting an unusual masked carnival character, this distinctive home accessory represents one of the greatest tragedies of 16th century English renaissance drama - the macabre play, 'The Duchess of Malfi.'
A Venetian decor mask of the Duchess of Malfi, this resin mask on stand represents a widowed 16th century Italian Duchess who secretly falls in love with her steward Antonio Bologna.
Although she promises her brothers that she will never remarry, the Duchess of Malfi then marries Antonio in secret and falls pregnant, much to her brother's sustain who later hire a hit man to kill her.
Sculpted from resin and painted in blackened silver with hints of gold, this striking Venetian mask represents an age of sophistication and elegance with a need for secrecy and pretence.
Combine with the accenting Duke of Malfi and Bouffon jester masks from the Houseology Authentic Models collection to create the ultimate scene on your display case.
Please note: Each mask is hand sculpted and is unique every time with no two exactly alike.
