The plague doctor costume was the clothing worn by a plague doctor to protect him from airborne diseases. He would also usually carry a cane and a mask with glass openings that allowed him to see without being contaminated.
This particular hat is known as “beak doctor” due to its beak-like shape. It was worn by doctors who treated those who had the Bubonic Plague. The costume consists of an ankle length overcoat and a bird-like beak mask, often filled with sweet or strong-smelling substances (commonly lavender), along with gloves, boots, a wide-brimmed hat, and an outer over-clothing garment.
