COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)— The Smithsonian Magazine reports a prop used in the The Wizard of Oz recently sold for $495,000 at auction.

It was the hour glass in the scene where the wicked witch tells Dorothy she only has a short time to live.

It stands 20 inches tall and almost a foot wide and has a gothic frame with gargoyles perched on three columns.

There’s no word on who bought it.
