About the Costume

This stunning antique French bed, circa the 1860s, was designed in the Louis XVI manner and was hand embroidered with Chinese silk panels. It was used in Gone with the Wind as Scarlett O’Hara’s bed after she marries Rhett Butler. 

The bed went up for auction at Julien’s in 2019, selling for $51,200. The previous owner claimed that the bed had been loaned to David O. Selznick by a prominent Southern California family and then returned. While this certainly may be true, the bed somehow made it back to the prop house for MGM before being given back to the family, as the piece did make a second appearance in the 1940 film All This, And Heaven Too. It was used as the bed of the Duchesse de Praslin, played by Barbara O’Neil, who had starred as Scarlett O’Hara’s mother the year before in Gone with the Wind.
