Collection of small amphorae, jewelry, and elaborate primitive telescope from Cleopatra. (TCF, 1963) Collection of screen-used objects from the 1963 version of Cleopatra, including: elaborate brass hand-held telescope device, presumed used to survey the battle at sea; two 5” amphorae, one with lid; three hand-blown glass bottles, two with stoppers; two pieces costume jewelry; simple brass headpiece which likely held flowers or feathers; and most identifiably, the bath sponge which Richard Burton uses playfully in Elizabeth Taylor’s sunken bath (Handle is original, sponge piece replaced later). Various studio markings on some, most notably the telescope: “20-C-FOX 32-2-41441.”
