It is well documented that almost all of the puppets sets and vehicles used during the many Gerry Andersons productions were destroyed after filming and now very little survives. Some items were kept by members of the production as keep sakes and it is also believed some passersby took items out of skips!!
The largest collection was that of Mary turner and John Reid which contained over 80 original heads, these heads along with some complete puppets belonging to Sylvia Anderson were auctioned off at Phillips in 1995.
If you own any original puppets, vehicles sets etc used during the production of a Gerry Anderson show we would love to hear from you as we are always looking at growing the archive.
Here is a copy is a copy of the Phillips auction catalogue.
