A famous prop used in the classic film "The Wizard of Oz" sold for nearly half a million dollars at auction.
It was the ornate hourglass used in the scene where the Wicked Witch of the West tells Dorothy she only has a short time to live.
The Smithsonian magazine says it sold for $495,000.
It stands 20 inches tall and almost a foot wide.
It has a gothic frame with gargoyles perched on three columns.
The auction house that oversaw the sale called it " the most recognizable signature prop from the film."
There is no word on who bought it.
