ORIGINAL DIVING BELL

Updated: April 06, 2012

Original Undersea miniatures from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. (ABC-TV, 1964-68) Three highly-detailed undersea miniatures used in filming the special effects sequences, accompanied with a small diving bell used for close-up shots. Each features a simulated metal surface covered with barnacles and rust, along with small trigger plungers (some bent), and the diving bell made from resin painted gold and red with studio weathering.

These pieces were fabricated by the 20th Century Fox special effects department, and most likely used in many other Fox film and Television productions in the 1960's. The miniatures measure 4 in. tall, and the diving bell measures 4 1/2 in. diameter.
