Original Rubber Hollywood Film Prop Communist Type Stick Grenades from Ellis Props & Graphics - 6 Items
Original Item: Only One Lot of 6 Available. These are full scale wooden replica non-functioning prop grenades as used in various Hollywood films and televisions shows. These were all acquired from the Ellis Props and Graphics liquidation auction. Ellis was the oldest and the largest Prop Houses in the World until it went out of business in the early 2000s.
The vast Ellis collection was acquired beginning in 1908, when a pawn shop, Ellis Mercantile, began renting merchandise to early filmmakers. According to Ellis Props, it began when a studio employee wanted to buy a glass eye. The pawn shop decided to rent it in case the owner returned, and it continued the practice with other items.
We are uncertain as to what types they are meant to resemble, if they resemble any. There are 5 of the same type with a rectangle “warhead” and one that resembles closely to ChiCom/NVA stick grenade types as seen used during the Vietnam War.
