Catalogue Note

So-called Schandmasken (Scold's bridles), were employed as punishments for minor wrongdoings. Its wearers were paraded in a public space such as a town square and exposed to the ridicule of onlookers. Note a comparable Schandmaske at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg (inv. no. StR 108).
