Jupiter's Darling, Snake Standard and flag

original movie prop

As seen on screen in the 1955 movie Jupiter's Darling, the movie

said to have ended Esther Williams MGM film carreer. Props from

this movie were reused from MGM's 1950 Julius Caesar. This hand

carved wooden snake standard likely also dates back to the silent

1925 Ben Hur, as the design has a spoked chariot wheel center, and

the banner flown below contained a horse figure. Chariot wheel flags

were shown in MGM's 1959 Ben Hur sound remake. Snake, wheel, and

top device form exactly matches this listing provided on screen photo.

Would be nice to know if the other Roman prop standards also survive?
