    1941 model miniature pier ticket booth. (Universal, 1979) Vintage original 14 x 7 x 8 in. miniature theater box office with Plexiglas-paned booth windows marked "Melting Pot" and a jutting, colorful flag-style sign with admission and show info. Constructed of wood with finely lathed finials and details. Expertly painted and then studio distressed to appear aged and weather worn. This miniature set piece would have been part of the massive city set models used in the film. In Steven Spielberg's WWII period comedy 1941, much of the spectacle relies on brilliant miniatures and models. This is an example of the masterful Hollywood model maker's best work. Exhibiting age and wear. In production used very good condition.
