A scold's bridle (also brank), was an instrument of punishment used primarily on women, as a form of torture and public humiliation. The device was an iron muzzle in an iron framework that enclosed the head. Most of the condemned persons stood in the pillory with a notice on his/her neck, explaining the committed offense. So could any citizen who was passing at the pillory, mock the person with impunity. Or the offender´s head was locked into the mask and he/she had to wear it for several days.
Most of these masks were made of metal and had the look of an animal head with specific characteristics for the offense committed. Our Scold's bridle shows a simpleton-face with a long nose (symbol of the hypocrisy). Other masks had e.g. big ears - for those listening/interested in affairs of other people inappropriately. Or a protruding tongue for too talkative people.
Made in Czech Republic.
