THE MUNSTERS ORIGINAL GRANDFATHER CLOCK
Prop grandfather clock from The Munsters. (CBS-TV, 1964-66) This two-piece
grandfather clock is constructed of brown-painted wood with several
hand-carved decorative features to the top "clock" portion, including an
ornate leaf motif around the face and a small bird at the top. The hands
and numbers are painted in a muted gold color, and have a single mechanical
wire mounted to the back side which is designed to allow the effects team to
spin the hands either forward or backward.
No actual clock movement is present which would allow the prop to keep
regular time. Two small hinged doors are set beneath the face, and swing
open (although there is no mechanical "bird" or other miniature figurine
designed into the recess). This clock was featured prominently in the
mansion, and was used throughout the series and can be seen very clearly in
An excellent set piece from this cult classic! Originally acquired from
Ellis Props & Graphics of Hollywood. Measures fully 6' 8" tall.
