Venetian Masquerade Masks For Him

Many Venetian masks can be worn by men and women alike but some are more masculine thanks to their form, texture and history. In this section, we have handpicked some that have been traditionally worn predominantly by men such as the Bauta and Nasone.

The Bauta Mask was made obligatory at certain decision-making events in Venice’s 18th century government. Made to cover the entire face, and with a large, beak-like nose stretching down to the chin, the wearer does not have to remove it to eat or drink.

In contrast to the regal Bauta, the Nasone usually graced the face of adventurous young men and swashbuckling officers boasting with tales of defeating whole armies of Turks on crusades and carrying off the beard of the Sultan!

Authentic Venetian masks are made from papier mache which is what makes them comfortable to wear. All our Venetian masquerade masks are handmade by skilled artisans in Venice, Italy, using traditional techniques.  Each mask comes with a certificate of authenticity. Thanks to their premium quality, these masks will look amazing not only on the day of the party but long after when they can be used as a splendid and unusual home decoration.
