Miss Fishtail Alien Mask
Original John Chambers-created "Miss Fishtail" alien mask from Lost in Space (CBS-TV, 1965-1968). Created from green-painted foam latex with bulging vacu-formed plastic eye sockets and large wing-style gills, this amphibious looking creature was used in the Lost in Space episode "Space Beauty". It was later pressed into use in Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea in the episode entitled "The Deadly Amphibians" (played by Don Matheson). Latex exhibits some deterioration common with masks of this age, but remains in remarkably good condition.

Item sold for $2,000 at the Profiles in History Hollywood Auction 40 on 10-12 June 2010.
