I have an interest in building a replica set of the 1966 Bruce Wayne Study, complete with sliding bookcase. Aside from the obvious props, I have been trying to identify other decor items in the room, from the taxidermy to lamps, floor globe, pictures, etc. Ultimately I would like to find similar items for the set build. I have not found very hires images to see clearly many of the objects.
I thought I would throw this topic up, in case there are others who have identified objects. Much of the decor seems to be mid century style, which makes sense. The Damask wallpaper I would imagine impossible to find, but there are some that closely match in color/style to what they used.
The black leather chair near the batpoles bookcase looks to be perhaps a Herman Miller style chair.
Other things that come to mind, are the wall pictures, letter holder that sits on the desk, there is a small trophy or brass sculpture on the rear cabinet, the two lamp/floor lamp that sits over the black leather chair. Among many other things.
If you have identified any of these objects, I would love to hear about it.

Good luck with the project and post here in this thread should you find any answers. I'm afraid time has taken it's toll on any surviving prop people, or at least their memories.
Another look at the study
Batman/Bruce would never take a human life, but had no problem hunting and mounting animal kills. It seems a man of his intellect and morals would take great issue with this.
And now back to your regularly scheduled program...
Thanks everyone for all these screengrabs, they are helpful. I have a side hustle in antiques and have seen many of these small items over the years come through the shop, and now trying to locate them is a needle in a haystack. But it is fun to try and tack them down. I’ve also noticed the set changes through the seasons. I’m considering going without the alcove, so closer to the pilot. Mainly for space... I’d like to have the sliding bookcase, but my batpoles won’t go anywhere. Thanks again for all the tips and pics, it’s verh helpful.A.

I have probably 1000's of captures over many years and here are some newer Blu-Ray captures that hopefully will help in your quest. I have tried over the years to ID this number/globe lamp with no luck!
And Major Nelson and Major Healy wore silver helmets for an anti-gravity test that looked a lot like the Freeze helmets without the visor, and without the quantity of expanding duct around the neck.
Funny how a lot of this stuff kept getting used over and over again.
