A Nautilus diver's helmet from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea\nDisney, 1954. Solid copper, includes the original rubber hoses and the copper neck ring, both of which are often missing. Accompanied by a copy of the film.\n\nThis crowntop helmet was worn by one of the crewmembers on the Captain Nemo's submarine, the Nautilus, which was famously designed with a blend of futuristic and Victorian elements, including an enormous pipe organ. The ship's unique design carries over to this helmet, based on a 19th century diving helmet. The Nautilus diving scenes were some of the most memorable in the film and are featured on the original movie poster. 20,000 Leagues was among the first big budget science fiction films ever made, and Disney spared no expense (including filming the epic giant squid fight twice.) The film was nominated for three Academy Awards® and won two, for Best Art Direction and Best Special Effects.\n19 x 18 x 18 in.
