    A Kerosene Lamp Possibly from "Gone With The Wind." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1939. Glass, in a typical 1860s-era style, two parts, bottom interior painted gold, top portion with metal holder at base, hurricane portion handpainted with a brown floral design; possibly the one seen to the far right in the scene where Vivien Leigh as "Scarlett O'Hara" and Olivia De Havilland as "Melanie Hamilton Wilkes" nurse the Confederate wounded though the middle metal part is different than the one that appears in the film -- it was possibly replaced later; the current owner obtained this from the owner of the bar directly opposite the SIP, Inc./Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios on Washington Boulevard in Culver City where years before, the bar owner obtained it as payment for an $8,000 tab racked up by a Prop Master. (Please note metal part displays patina due to age and some of the floral design is smudged.)
    Height: 19"; Base: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
