Our expert's notesA Black Pearl model stern from Gore Verbinski's action-adventure film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl. Built by the ILM model shop, the stern was once part of a full-ship model used for wide shots in the first Pirates of the Caribbean film. A new Black Pearl model was built for the second Pirates film, Dead Man's Chest, which incorporated some of the detail elements from this original first-film model, and the original first-film model was subsequently cut in half for use in upside-down water-tank effects work for the third Pirates film, At World's End.
This highly detailed large-scale model stern is made of wood and resin. The ship features much of its original detailing, including the tiles, the centre lantern, and the port-side detail. The model was restored after production by some of the original model makers. The Poseidon and whale figures are cast from the original moulds, the side lanterns are recreated from original production components, and the deck, skylight, and starboard shelf are reproductions made from the original blueprints. The model was repainted during the restoration, and the lanterns and clear-plastic windows (on the stern and sides, and the skylight) all light up. This substantial piece rests on a wheeled black stand with an attached power box. The model exhibits some wear, including minor paint scuffing. Dimensions: 152.5 cm x 139.75 cm x 170.25 cm (60" x 55" x 67")
