VOYAGE SEAVIEW REPLICA (PAUL LUBLINER)
I received this e-mail on February 15, 2005
I have absolutely NO information on this object (5 foot "Seaview," your item #21?) as it is not a Fox prop and is quite obviously not a Seaview but a somewhat sad attempt at a Seaview.
I say this with some serious authority. I have restored in the past numerous original "Voyage" props and master patterns. You even have a image in your photo collection taken by me of one four foot Seaview (the one with the blue "plush" velour curtain background) that I made from the molds I that made from the original wood and plaster master pattern that I restored. It was seen in the feature film behind Walter Pigeon in his office. I am not at liberty to say just how many pieces I've done, but it is a LOT of original stuff!
I am attaching a photo of a current piece I am finishing as well as a close-up of the nose of the four footer I did from the pattern.. ALL of my clients are in the film industry (as am I on some productions) so I know from which I speak.
Please do remove the above one you have from your site as it does reduce your credibility as an authority.
(*) Special thanks to, Paul Lubliner for this current update on this item!
