A Clark Gable cigar case from Gone With the Wind MGM, 1939. Gold and silver-plated cigar case with two different plaques which can alternately adorn the lid: one rectangular-shaped featuring a racing horse head in bas relief and the other oval-shaped featuring a three-masted schooner. The case is lined on either side with silk cigar holders (one is loose). Made by Joseff of Hollywood. This cigarette case features prominently in one of the most amusing, yet poignant, scenes in David O. Selznick's masterpiece, Gone With the Wind, when Rhett Butler (Gable), Melanie (Olivia de Havilland), and Scarlett (Vivien Leigh) donate their items for the war effort. Rhett donates this valuable gold cigarette case and nonchalantly drops it into the donation basket. He later causes a minor scandal when he bids to dance with Scarlett (who is in mourning and thus, not allowed to dance) for $150 dollars "in gold!" Accompanied by a DVD of the film. Provenance: Treasures from the Vault: Joseff of Hollywood, Julien's Auctions, November 18, 2017, lot 302. 4 x 6.5 x 1 in.
