PROPS: Bat-Respirator From TV's Batman
This is Batman (Adam West) and Robin’s (Burt Ward) Bat-Respirator from the classic television series Batman. "This gas mask has a gray fiberglass faceplate with brass and nickel-plated valves connected by metal cables and loosely screwed into place. A fabric-covered bite is still present and attached, yet exhibits signs of deterioration, leaving the wire exposed. The piece is in good vintage condition overall, consistent with age and production use. There is some damage to the fiberglass at the upper part of faceplate."
"Bat-Respirators are used by Batman and Robin to protect themselves from the Riddler in the episodes ‘Smack in the Middle’ (102) and ‘Batman’s Anniversary’ (245), amongst others. Included with this lot is an 8x10" reference photo showing the piece."
"Dimensions: 6'' x 4 ¾'' x 2 ¾'' (15 cm x 12 cm x 7 cm)"
