The Wicked Witch’s Iconic Hourglass from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ Sells for $495,000 at Auction

NOTE: This article is 1 month old and may not include the most recent information.

In a recent auction, the iconic hourglass prop from the classic film “The Wizard of Oz” sold for a whopping $495,000. This hourglass, known for its role in the movie as a symbol of the Wicked Witch’s power and the limited time Dorothy and her friends had to escape her grasp, was made of wood and papier-mâché and featured a Gothic frame with winged gargoyles. The glass inside was hand-blown and filled with red glitter for display purposes.

The hourglass played a significant part in the film’s climactic scene, as the Witch holds it above her head in defiance as Dorothy and her friends try to escape. It has also been used in several other films after “The Wizard of Oz,” including “Babes on Broadway,” “Diane,” and “7 Faces of Dr. Lao.”

This sale showcases the enduring popularity and cultural significance of “The Wizard of Oz,” as well as the value placed on rare and unique film props. It’s clear that this hourglass will always be remembered as one of the most famous and recognizable timepieces in film history.
