We are pleased to provide you with these luxurious reproduction and historically accurate beauty spots, also know as pox marks and beauty marks. These marks were originally used by the wealthy and nobility as a means to conceal smallpox marks (pox marks), or scarring from syphilis and other such conditions. Over time, specifically as it pertains to the 17th and 18th centuries, these items became a prized beauty accessory and were put into use by both men and women as decorative items, regardless of whether a man, or woman, had blemishes that required concealment.
Our reproduction marks are produced out of leather, a period material for such items and come in sets of ten, inclusive of five circles, three hearts and two stars, as well as with a period correct adhesive and may be washed and re-used, as required. These marks are highly appropriate for historical costuming, living history and historical reenactments for both men and women portraying an individual of the upper classes. Please see the images posted within this page for examples of how to apply our marks.
This item is made to order and will be ready in less than one to two weeks (usually sooner) from the order date.
