Travelling Companions Face Mask

Current price


Exclusive to Birmingham Museums, this stylish reusable face mask features the Travelling Companions, a painting on display in the Round Room in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. This mask features the hugely popular oil painting by Augustus Leopold Egg, created in 1862. The painting depicts a mirror image of identically dressed women They face each other in the confined space of a railway carriage from which a view of the sunlit coast near Meudon in southern France can be seen. The movement of the train is suggested by the swinging tassel of the window blind. One figure dozes, the other reads, perhaps depicting a modern version of 'Industry and Idleness'.

Made from double layer microfibre, and supplied with a removable PM 2.5 filter. The mask is machine washable and has an open pocket at one end to allow the filter to be removed and has elastic ear straps. Please be advised that this is not certified PPE or a medical device. When wearing this mask wash your hands before putting it on or taking it off, ensure you have a snug fit and be mindful not to touch your face.
