The mysterious blue portrait gown in Rhett Butler's room.
It makes a cameo in Gone with the Wind, where Rhett throws a glass at the portrait.
One of the gowns done by Franklin Mint, which is briefly seen in the movie - and not even worn by the actress, only in a painting in Rhett Butler's room. The blue velvet done is rich and soft. I love the way this dress drapes when photographed; also the way it reflects light. It is not made to fit the Tonner Scarlett doll but since the doll is articulated it gives life to this beautiful dress. The sleeves are filled with soft sponge-y material to give it that puffed up look. It comes with blue shoes and a pearl tiara which the doll is not wearing here. Franklin Mint also gave this ensemble a shawl which is faithful to the way the shawl looks on the painting. It is however, very, very fragile. One tug and you can destroy this little accessory. The Franklin Mint Blue Velvet gown is very rare. I was lucky to have found it securely tagged in Ebay -- and bidded for it till the wee hours of the morning. I hope you enjoy the portraits as much as I did making them. Here it is worn by my most cooperative subject, my repainted Tonner Scarlett O' Hara doll.
