    Description

    Silver loving-cup trophy attributed as a 1939 Christmas gift from Carole Lombard to Clark Gable. (Dec. 25, 1939) Silver "loving-cup" style trophy, 10 x 11 in. (on later-added octagon scallop base for lamp conversion) engraved "Carole to Clark" 12-25-1939" and attributed by recent owner Billie Nelson Tyrrell of the Antique Doll Emporium as a Christmas 1939 gift from Carole Lombard to her husband of nine months, Clark Gable. Coincidentally, the Los Angeles premiere of Gone With the Wind was just three days later, on Dec. 28, 1939, and this may have some connection to the timing of this gift. Lamp-conversion interior workings have been removed, leaving original loving cup seated atop the 3 in. high by 9 in. diameter added pedestal base. Heavily tarnished throughout exterior and interior surfaces, though free of noticeable dents or other rough treatment; very good condition.
