OUR STAR TREK FOUND ITEM PROP BOTTLES

PLEASE REFRESH to pick up the latest version

NOTE: I am in the process of updating this page with new information
NEW ADDITIONS will be in a WHITE FONT

This is going to take some time because I have LOTS of notes and photos to process.
I would like to thank all the people who have contacted me over the years, sending me things you've identified.
As many as possible are included below, attributed to the first person who contacted me.
Therefore, this website has become a collaborative effort and I LOVE that!!

The weird characters you see (“) are due to changes in the way the host software now interprets the font I'm using.
As I find them, I change them. The characters it doesn't like are -, ' , and ".)

It has come to my attention that some sellers (eBay, Etsy, etc.)
are using my descriptions to sell their wares, but they often do NOT have the EXACT thing we are looking for.
If you see this, know that I DO NOT ENDORSE ANTHING SOMEONE ELSE SELLS!!.
Only a few of the things shown here have any real value.

SELLERS: if you're going to sell something shown on this page, please list it as a "FOUND ITEM" not as a prop.
If you aren't sure whether what you have is truly a found item, please ask me.

This webpage was created to help people who collect Star Trek found item table and bar ware.

While there are photos and descriptions of the physical items on the Star Trek Auction Archive and there are screen caps in several places no one, to my knowledge, has documented the ORIGIN of those items or researched their current availability. There are bits and pieces on several websites and forums (listed on my links page) but nowhere is the information consolidated in one place.

I am trying to do that here, and find that it helps me manage my own collection as well.

This page is a work in progress and reflects the current state of my knowledge, which will always be incomplete. It is also purely MY OPINION, not fact, and should be treated as such. I have no connection to CBS Studios, Paramount Pictures, or the Star Trek franchise, I have not consulted anyone who worked in the prop department or handled any screen-used props other than the few glasses I own. My opinions are based solely on screen caps and my knowledge of tableware (which I have collected since I was 12). I welcome all corrections, additions, and discussions!

If you own any screen-used items which have identifying marks that we can use to track down found items, please share them!


Many of the images below are from the auctions run by It's A Wrap! Production Wardrobe Sales aka IAW.

CBS/Paramount Television used IAW to liquidate their vast collection of Star Trek props. The auctions started in December of 2006 and ended in April 2009. Most people thought these auctions were awesome because they made screen-used props available to everyone. For me these IAW auctions were phenomenal in that they provided descriptions, dimensions, and photos from different angles all of which can be used to track down (or recreate) the found item.

Fortunately, the auction data has been archived at StarTrekPropCollector.com. Many thanks to all those responsible for creating and maintaining this invaluable resource; and, many thanks to the people at IAW for doing such a thorough job with the listings.

Most of the screen caps on this page are from Memory-Alpha or Trek Core or DITL.org . The rest were provided by the members of Star Trek Invisionzone and John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .

NOTE: This website does not cover every piece of found-item table and bar ware used on the show, only those that I have some information on (or, wish I had information on). If I have not included an item that is dear to you, let me know and I'll see if I can find it. Rest assured that I will give you any information I uncover before I add it to this site, so that you may find your grail first.


KEY TO PHOTOS SHOWN BELOW
(and on all the detail pages):
In the left-hand column will be a screen cap if I have one.
In the middle column will be an IAW picture or another screen cap.
In the right-hand column will be our version of the bottle in question.
Where possible, I suggest appropriately colored alcohol fillings.
(Measurements were taken with a tape measure from the table to the bottle lip.)

If you would like to send me a comment or correction, please reference the three-digit number at the top of each entry so that I know exactly which item you are commenting on, and press here to send me an email (remove the spaces from the email address).

A NOTE ON THE FILLING SUGGESTIONS: The suggestions I offer are for straight alcohol, not cocktails. The reason for this is twofold: 1) straight alcohol can be left in the bottle indefinitely without refrigeration and 2) we use the alcohol in the bottle to mix multiple cocktails, we do not serve the mixed drink from the bottle. Our bottles are displayed year-round and used to mix every drink we serve, even our non-Star Trek concoctions.

If you are looking for cocktail recipes to fill your bottles, you will need to look elsewhere.




ALL series are represented here: TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT, and the movies.

I will be adding the new series as I collect information on them.

If YOU have information to share, please send it to me!

How I Clean Old Bottles

B001

DS9 Prophet Motive - Aldebaran whiskey

TNG Relics - Aldebaran whiskey

filling suggestion: Carnivo, Midori, Shaka Kiwi. Carnivo is cognac based, the others are sweeter, similar to Triple Sec.


* As you can see, there were two bottles used to hold this beverage.
* I believe the short squat one is the Cuervo Gold 1800 tequila bottle with a red tassel around its neck.
* I think the tall thin one might be this olive oil bottle 11.25" tall and 2"round.
* I bought ours from a customizer, Terry Jewell .
* The stopper usually seen on this bottle is a plastic salt shaker shaped like a star, but I don't think the stopper was ever shown on screen.
* If you have a screen cap with the stopper, please send it to me!!

* The star stopper shown on our bottle I see occasionally on eBay. Make sure that the one you buy has all its points.



Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .
* It looks to me like the colors do not match the screen used bottle so John and I will be working to correct that.
* My bottle, which is 15.75" tall, appears to be larger than the screen used one.


B002

DS9 Move Along Home - Alphacurrant nectar

Filling suggestion: Campari, Saffron gin, Stirrings Blood Orange Martini mix


* I have not been able to find any information on this bottle.
* I have not found anything even close to it for our use.
* I suspect it was made by the prop department and is not a found item.


Stephen D and Patrick K both identified this as an antique powder flask!!!!!.
I found a similar one for sale for $1,100.00, which is too rich for my blood!
It was described as "17th-century-wheellock-combination-flask," and is shown on the right below.
There are other similar flasks for sale at SellAntiqueArms.com


Comments:
* The screen cap in the middle was given to me by John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio ,
* In that shot the bottle appears to be wood with a pewter colored metal frame and spout.
* Even with this much better picture, I still have no idea where it originated.



B003

ENT Babel One - Andorian ale

Filling suggestion: Hpnotiq, Alize, Magellan gin


* The only bottle I have seen to date that even resembled the screen-used one was frosted and arrived filled with red wine vinegar.
* There was no brand or manufacturer listed but there was a UPC code, 36113 02008, if anyone knows how to track something down that way.
* Matt D. says he knows enough about UPC codes to help us: The first six numbers identify the manufacturer of the product. In this case 36113.
* It's a unique sequence, so if those numbers match the first six on another product UPC, it means that the manufacturer is the same.
* How does that help? There's no Google for UPC codes.
* Well, as luck would have it, the only other UPC code listed on this page also starts with 36113!
* The citrus vinegar bottle (aka Risan wine) made by Gourmet Art of Vermont.
* Unfortunately, we now know that Gourmet Art of Vermont is out of business, but at least we know where the bottle originated!!!
*
* Clint C. tells me he found a clear one filled with olive oil. 500ml. There was no identifying information.
* In the second row is the photo Nilva sent me showing the bottle filled with vinegar.

* The on-screen bottle was 14.25" tall by 3.25" (and the glasses shown with it were 4.25" x 1.5").
* Our bottle is 13" tall.
* Yes, I know the labels are wrong. I have not had time to put the gold tape on ours.




Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio
* Tape in all colors and sizes is available from Grafstick Tape and Label
*


B004

ENT Proving Ground - Andorian whiskey

ENT In a Mirror Darkly II - set dressing
* This bottle was originally a Vinuva Pinot Grigio wine bottle.
* Described by IAW as 14" by 3" with a "glittery silver" decal.
* The wine is no longer being sold but the bottles appear occasionally (rarely) on eBay.
* I bought ours from www.startrekgoodies.com but they are no longer offering them for sale.
* We have this in two sizes, 12.75 inches and 15.5 inches, so the IAW measurement must have included the cork.
* (There is a silver version of this bottle as well, not used on screen.)



Comments:
* For help with bottle labels, please see the graphics page.
* There is a customizer on eBay offering a cast version of this bottle which might be an alternative for some.


B005

TNG - Chateau Picard Bordeaux Wine

PIC1 - Chateau Picard Bordeaux Wine

* There is a wine company in California selling Chateau Picard wine with a lable IDENTICAL to the one used on-screen in Star Trek: Picard Season 1 (and probably every season after that, too)!
* Here is a link to it: Star Trek Wines Chateau Picard Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux
* I have some on order and will share my tasting notes when we open them! (Once the weather warms enough for them to ship.)

* In the middle are all four of the Star Trek wines that company currently produces. Each bottle is available separately, or in special combination packs. They also sell them by the case.

* On the right is the original 2001 Chateau Picard label from a bottle I bought on eBay.

B006

TOS Is There in Truth No Beauty - Antarean brandy

VOY The Void - Pinot Noir

Filling suggestion: some blue Curacao is this dark; Parfait Amour might work


* This looks like a bud vase OR an absinth decanter to me.
* I thought it was also used for pinot noir, in the middle picture, but seeing them next to each other the pinot noir decanter looks bigger.
* It looks like it has a pouring lip and it does NOT have a ground neck so it probably did not have a glass stopper.
* It's too small for our use so we don't have one.
* BHE sent me a photo of his carafe which he says he found by searching for "goose neck carafe or decanter ".
* It's 10 inches tall. There are no markings, as you can see from the photo of the bottom.

B007

VOY Shattered - Antarian cider (note the different spelling of Antarian here vs Antarean above)

Filling suggestion: apple brandy, calvados, cider, olive oil


* In the first image this bottle looks taller than normal.
* But in the second, it looks like the Vulcan port bottle.
* Acording to this video , by Penny Juday, the art department coordinator and archivist for Star Trek, this bottle originally contained olive oil.
Oh, no!!! CBS took that video down!!!
* I suspect the on-screen one still contains olive oil.
* There is no label visible in the screen shots I have.



Comments:
* For help with bottle labels, please see the graphics page.
* The bottle we are using is triangular and 16" inches tall.
* I found it on eBay.


B008

ENT VOY - Captain Archer's decanter
* This decanter was made in Poland by Studio Nova.
* It is amazingly heavy, which makes it unwieldy as a decanter, but it is a gorgeous thing to behold.
* I found ours on eBay.
* It is 10" tall without stopper, 12.75" with, and 7" wide at the base and weighs 5 pounds! With the stopper it's 12.75" tall.

* In the second row is a screen cap Greg S. found of this decanter filled with RED liquid! Good eye, Greg!!

B009

DS9 - Bajoran perfume bottle
* I found our bottle on eBay by accident. When I did a search on "pink bottle" and forgot to exclude all perfume, snuff, polish etc… this bottle came up in the search. I subsequently looked for a yellow one to no avail. So, ours is pink, and has a different design on the front.
* Our bottle is 3.75" tall, 3" at it's widest, and 1" deep at the bottom
* On the bottom is a cow's/bull's head but other than that, there are no identifying marks.
* I am still looking for the rounded attachments on the front and sides. I suspect they are wood, painted silver.

B010

DS9 Strange Bedfellows - Bajoran spring wine

Filling suggestion: Hpnotiq, Alize, Magellan gin,


* I have not been able to find the origin of this bottle but I suspect it is a tequila bottle.
* I bought ours from a customizer, Terry Jewell .
* On our bottles, the squiggly lines are painted and the gold stripes are tape.
* Our small bottle, which I believe is the correct size, is 13.75" tall. Our big one is 16.5" tall.



Comments:
* I believe the paint most customizers use is automotive paint.
* I would use Pebeo Vitrea 160 a food-safe glass paint which is available in tubes or markers.
* Tape in all colors and sizes is available from Grafstick Tape and Label


B011

IAW lot
* These bottles were made by Tynant (pronounced tee-nent) , out of Wales (in the UK).
* They are still available here.
* If you are unable to find a distributor in your area, contact me as I have lots of empties.
* The 750ml bottle is 11" tall.



Comments:
* John and I are working on labels for this bottle.
* I was not able to find metallic copper label stock so John suggested asking a sign maker to cut them for me.


B012

ENT Rajiin II - V'radian (B'rat Ud's) chemistry bottles
* These were described as 13.5 by 5.75.
* The shape, size and top is very much like a 1000ml flat bottom volumetric flask.
* The tops they make these days are different - plastic, not ground glass - so you may need to look on eBay for a used one.
* Every brand is a slightly different shape. The ones I found which most closely matched the measurements were Pyrex and Macalaster.



Comments:
* For help with bottle labels, please see the graphics page.
* It looks to me like they are filled with lentils! .


B013

DS9 Profit and Lace - Ferengi eelwasser

Filling suggestion: Campari, Luxardo, cherry Heering, sloe gin, Stirring’s blood orange martini mix


* This bottle was made in Spain and is available in many colors.
* It has a relief of leaves around the shoulders and about 2.25" of ribbing around the bottom.
* Our bottle is 10.75" tall.
* Because the red in the photo goes all the way to the lip of the neck I believe it is the red bottle and not a clear bottle filled with red liquid.
* The label is apparently the Vulcan IDIC symbol
* Our bottle is red but we are using a label created by John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio for our Eelwasser bottles and modified by me to fit this bottle.



Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .
*
* An interesting side note: a bottle like this was sold on eBay by a seller located in Hawaii as "purchased at the prop warehouse for the t.v. show LOST".


B014

TOS By Any Other Name - something green

TOS Journey to Babel - opaque milky liquid

TOS Let That be Your Last Battlefield - red liquid

Filling suggestion: Cynar, Irish Cream liqueur, Campari


* This is the Elsinore Kluk Kluk decanter made by Holmegaard. The one Scotty is holding looks like the smoke color in the medium size with a bent neck. It may also be the clear version with remnants of Green on the bottom.
* It was also made in clear, amber, green, teal, and blue.
* Some of them were bent, like Scotty's, but the majority of them were straight.
* Because it was hand made the sizes are not exact.
* The largest seem to be between 12 and 14, including the stopper, the medium between 8 and 10, and the small between 6 and 8 inches tall.
* Our bent bottle is 8.5" tall.
* Two stoppers were available, a round one similar to Archer's decanter, and one that looks like a crown.
* The decanter used on-screen appears to have the crown stopper.
* There are always several on eBay described as "Kluk Kluk" or "Cluck Cluck" or "Glug Glug" for the noise it makes as it pours.

* Correction from Nic on the Star Trek New Voyages forum :
* The proper, generic, name for this form of decanter is 'kuttrolf', and it has been around for centuries - 'Kluk Kluk' is just the marketing name Holmegaard used for them. They are a traditional shape and many factories across Europe, Scandinavia and Bohemia were producing them before, during and after Holmegaard's production of them. Holmegaard were making them from at least the 1850s, long before Per Lutken worked for the factory (1942 - 1998). The versions with the crown-shaped stoppers, both straight and bent, were designed at Holmegaard by Jacob Eiler Bang in 1936 as part of his extensive 'Viol' tableware range, and they were in production in a variety of colours for about 50 years. The example on set appears to be in the 'Smoke' colourway (grey with a subtle green tint), which was first introduced in the late 1940s. This 'Viol' kuttrolf was made in this colour until at least the 1980s.




Comments:
* Two of ours are shown below, one with the correct crown stopper and the other with the incorrect ball stopper.
* You can see that although they are almost the same size, their shape is slightly different.

DS9 Destiny
DS9 The Way of the Warrior (opaque orange)
DS9 Ties of Blood and Water
DS9 Behind the Lines

DS9 The Changing Face of Evil
DS9 Image in the Sand


filling suggestions: Kaluha, Blavod or Vampyre black vodka, Patron XO Café:


* The spiral bottle used on the show was supposedly sold by D'Aquino Italian Importing Co for their Chianti.
* They still sell the 3-foot tall version but not the shorter one (yes, I contacted them).
* The one used on the show was 13" tall and 14” wide which would be the 750ml version.
* HOWEVER: the bottle used on-screen had a kidney-bean shaped area for a label and the basket on the Chianti bottle would have covered it so I doubt the D'Aquino bottle had the label area and, therefore, I doubt it was a D'Aquino bottle used on the show.

* This bottle shape is also used by firms which sell flavored vinegars and is available occasionally in gourmet stores and BigLots (and, I'm told, around Christmastime at Target).
* The prop dept used many vinegar bottles and I believe this was a vinegar bottle, too.
* The last one I bought was sold by Swiss American Co.
* I contacted them and they said that they imported the bottle from Vitrocolor in Spain and had it filled locally.
* I have been unable to contact Vitrocolor .

* The bottle used on-screen originally had a cork stopper (i.e. no threads). Some of the vinegar-filled ones have a screw cap.
* I have seen this shape on eBay in red, yellow, blue and green as well as the clear version used on-screen.
*
* Terry Jewell , the customizer I've bought many bottles from, pointed out that there are two shapes to the flat part in front where the label goes. On some bottles this area is very rounded and attaching a paper label is difficult.




STOPPERS


* I recently acquired a screen-used bottle WITH THE STOPPER, and will be posting photos and measurements soon.
* The on-screen stopper was actually a pourer, like this one , with the top flange removed and the pour spout shortened. The silver top was made to fit OVER the pour spout!
* I have been looking for a similar pourer, and have not been able to find one, so perhaps the prop department modified a pourer to fit under their cap.





* Rain M. sent me some photos of a stopper custom made by Etsy seller Sean Murray of ModernGrainWoodcraft which is similar to the on-screen one.
* The stopper measurements not including the stopper hardware are as follows:
* Lower-Band Width: 1 1/8"
* Lower-Band Thickness: 1/4"
* Total Length: 1 7/16"
* Cylinder Width: 13/16"
* Rain then painted the raw wood using Stuart Semple metallic acrylic silver .
* Photos of the before and after are shown below.





* Terry Jewell tells me that he now makes his stoppers using a resin cast of a stopper just like the one used on the show!
* When I compare his stopper to the one that came with my screen-used bottle it is almost identical - including the small ridge around the domed top!
* He gave me permission to post photos, which are shown on the left and center below.
*
* If you need a "close enough" stopper you can use this milk bottle cabinet knob shown on the right, screwed onto a cork.
* The stopper I have which is made from that knob is shown on the right.
* I also have one bottle where it looks like the customizer carved the stopper out of wood, just like Rain's.






* I added below some photos of the different STOPPERS this bottle has had.
* The links were sent to me by John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .
* The one on the left is from The Maquis Part 2, and looks like ??? You tell me! I have no idea! Something concocted from clay?
* The one in the middle is from Ties of Blood and Water, and looks like it might be a pouring contraption.
* The one on the right is from Til Death Do Us Part, and looks like a stainless phallus or bullet.






Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .
* John's vinyl labels will fit your bottle even if it is the rounded type as the vinyl gives a little, unlike paper label stock.
* We found that the label area on these bottles varies in size so make sure you send him the measurements for yours.

Mirror Universe Kanar - FANON ONLY!
This bottle has never been seen on-screen.


It was originally created by a fan as his interpretation of what the mirror universe bottle might look like.
Over time, it became ubiquitous, and other fans assumed it was "real".
Yes, I have one, but I cannot honestly call it a found item.
If you have a screen cap please send it to me and I will update this section.

I am leaving the description up because a lot of people cherish this bottle but I must add the disclaimer:
>>>>>> FANON ONLY - THIS BOTTLE HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN ON-SCREEN! <<<<<<

* The 'spiral' on this bottle is a snake, not ridges like the one above.
* It, too, is 13"' tall.
* Although I have several of these, they all arrived empty with no identifying marks or labels.
* I suspect they are used for vinegars and other food stuff, not alcohol .
* I bought ours from a customizer, Terry Jewell .
* It is painted a matte green with a slight metallic texture.
* The image on the right compares the label area for two of our bottles, a rounded one and a flatish one.



Comments:
* I believe the paint most customizers use is automotive paint.
* I would use Pebeo Vitrea 160 a food-safe glass paint which is available in tubes or markers.
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .
* John's vinyl labels will fit your bottle even if it is the rounded type as the vinyl gives a little, unlike paper label stock.
* As you can see in the image above, the bottle on the left has the rounded label area and John's label curves with it.
* It appears that the label area on these bottles varies in size so make sure you send him the measurements for yours.


B015c

DS9 The Wire - alternate version of Kanar, blue liquid in a different bottle
* The bottle pictured below was used for both Wee Bairns whiskey AND Kanar.
* These bottles were made in Spain and are available in many colors.
* They are sometimes available at PierOne and Michael"s for people who bottle home made vinegar.
* We are using a blue one.
* Ours is ?? " tall.



Comments:
* For help with bottle labels, please see the graphics page.


B016

VOY Scientific Method - Ktarian merlot
* I am sure I have seen this bottle somewhere (tequila? whiskey?) and will update this description when I remember!
* Our bottle came from eBay. It is a slightly different shape, dark blue, and very heavy.
* According to Memory-Alpha, the on-screen label is a reuse of the logo of the Akritirian species.
* Our label is a variation of the Zorn logo.

DS9 Vortex - Cardassian languor

DS9 The House of Quark - Klingon bloodwine

Filling suggestions: for langour: Pinky vodka, pink grapefruit juice, pink grapefruit soda, pink lemonade

Filling suggestions: for bloodwine: malbec


* I see this bottle all the time on eBay described with 'grapes' in the title.
* In June 2010 John alerted me to the fact that it was available online at Hobby Lobby .
* I bought one and, except for the slight green tinge, it is closer to the screen-used one than the ones I found on eBay.
* If you look closely, it has a slightly shorter neck and, since the body is taller, it is also a bit wider.
* The glasses in the screen cap are supposedly 8" 6.5 inches tall and ours are only 6.25
* I have since acquired some of the glasses used on the show.
* The tall one is 8 inches (tall!) and the small one is 6.5 inches.
* From the shape of the glasses in the screencap, it looks like they used the smaller 6.5 inch size.

* There is more than one mold so study the photo below carefully to make sure you get the right one!
* The 'wrong' mold has a narrower bottom and a wider top (shown in the third row below).
* Our bottle is 10" tall and 4" at its widest.
* I see it in many different colors. Make sure you get the clear one, not the light green one.
* I believe the stopper is a drawer pull or cabinet knob attached to a cork.




Comments:
* Pink lemonade seems to be closest in color and consistency to what was seen on-screen.
* If you use pink grapefruit juice, make sure you store your bottle in the refrigerator.
* Shown below are two bottles, one with pink grapefruit juice and one with Pinky vodka
* Our glasses are the 13.5 oz Luigi Bormioli Strauss pattern, 6.25 inches tall
* The black tray is a round foodservice tray which needs to be replaced with a rectangular one.


* The bottle shown on the left below is the WRONG SHAPE!

* The bottles shown in the middle below are Hobby Lobby on the left and eBay (vintage) on the right.
* On the right are the same two bottles with our 6.25" tall glass between them.


B018

TOS Let That be Your Last Battlefield - 23/32 size

TOS Gamesters of Triskelion - 23/32 size

Filling suggestion: Blue Curacao


* This is a Galliano bottle, available in most liquor stores.
* Galliano is a yellow anise-herb flavored liqueur developed in Italy but now made in Switzerland.
* It is available in two sizes, too small (375ml) and too tall (750ml - 17 inches tall)
* Galliano USED TO make a 500ml size (13.5 inches) which is the size that was used on the show.
* Jim C. tells me that the correct size, which shows up occasionally on eBay, is described as 23/32 (13.5 inches).
* He says the time period for this size fits the time frame for the episode as well.
* I agree this is the correct size.
* However, every one that I've seen in that size has a blue soldier decal on one side which will have to be removed.
* Or, perhaps, that is why it's filled with blue liquid? Can you see the outline of the soldier?

* BHE alerted me to the fact that this bottle is also seen in Gamesters of Triskelion.
* We believe this is the same 23/32 version. Filled with dark liquid again.

* Empty bottles occasionally show up on eBay.

TOS Let That be Your Last Battlefield -


* If you plan to use this decanter to serve alcohol, know that it is lead crystal and the lead WILL leach.
* It's OK to fill it, serve what's in it, and then empty it. Quote below is from Lead Crystal Safety: .

To avoid high levels of lead, wine or liquor in a crystal decanter should be consumed in a matter of 2 hours and should never be left to sit. On the other hand, the amount of lead that can leach into a glass of wine that is only left sitting for a half hour or so is not very high. This means that in theory you can use your leaded crystal glasses on occasion and for short periods without worrying if the lead is leaking into the drink at dangerously high levels.



* I finally know where this bottle might have originated!
* The bottle was handmade in Florence, Italy for Calvert Distillers Co in 1953. It stands 9" tall.
* Lord Calvert Whisky was owned by Seagrams at that time and was subsequently sold to Jim Beam.
* I have been trying to contact Jim Beam to ask whether it was sold this way for more than one year.
* I suspect it is an extremely rare single-year issue.
* I won ours on eBay for more than I care to admit.
* If I am correct, the stopper used on screen is not original.
* The stopper that came with the decanter is round.


* I traded this decanter, so I no longer have it as a reference.
* The one I do have is the empty one shown below next to the blue/violet one.
*
* For those of you who are looking for EXACTLY the right decanter, read on:


*BHE tells me that he does not believe this is the correct decanter because of the shape of the neck.
*He believes the correct decanter WAS made by Lord Calvert, but it is not the Canadian Ten
*He has seen several of these decanters, all supposedly by Lord Calvert, and they all have a different neck!
*In the photos he sent me (under the screen cap) you can see the neck line of the screenused, the Canadian Ten, and the Calvert from top to bottom.
*You can see that the lip on the Canadian Ten is thicker than the Calvert, and the Calvert lip more closely matches the screenused.

*I agree that the Canadian Ten bottle shown below does not have the correct neck, or the correct lip!
*If you look at the screen cap on the left, the neck is almost straight.
*In the photo of the Canadian Ten bottle on the right, the neck is curved and has some buttresses.
*If you look at the photo of my two bottles, the blue/violet one has the correct neck and correct lip, but it is clearly NOT Lord Calvert!
*The blue/violet one is a little smaller than the clear one.
*The clear one in the photos with the blue/violet has the wrong neck, but the right lip!
*The clear one arrived without a lable, so I have no idea where it originated.

*It's possible that some Lord Calvert bottles DO have the correct neck and/or lip.
*It's also possible - probable, actually - that other manufacturers also used this bottle to sell alcohol.
*And, we know for a fact that it was sold as an empty decanter.

* If you're looking for this bottle and you care about the neck and lip, please check before you buy!!!

*
* BHE also feels that the slightly smaller size of the decanters with the correct neck and lip, like the blue/violet one, are closer to the correct size.
* The photo in the third row below is another one BHE sent me showing what he feels are the correct dimensions, or very close, for the bottle:
* bottom is 3 5/8 x 2 1/2 inches
* top of main section is 4 5/8 x 3 1/4 inches
* height of main section is 5 5/8 inches
* height to top of lip is 8 3/8 inches
* width of lip is 2 5/16 inches

* SCROLL DOWN FOR EVEN MORE DATA ON THIS BOTTLE!!


*See the section below, B019Stopper, for information on the stopper.





Comments:
* I found a decanter just like this one on eBay, 8.5" tall in blue, with a square stopper.
* The one I found is supposedly by Baccarat but I do not see the traditional Baccarat seal on it.
* It is slightly smaller than the Calvert one.
* Both decanters are shown above for comparison purposes.
* I am sure I will never find the correct shape stopper in blue!

* I found this screen cap in my add-to-website-folder of an eBay auction I did not bid on
* It was described as a, "vintage Ceskci signed (etched in glass) vase decanter with lid; 10 inches tall x 4.5 x 3.25. "
* Heavy crystal, it weighs 4.5 pounds.
* This appears to match the measurements BHE sent and it is obviously NOT LORD CALVERT!!

* Bottom line for me is that the Lord Calvert is close enough.
* If you must have exactly the same as screen used, look for this decanter with the slimmer profile and neck.




B019Green

TOS Let That be Your Last Battlefield -

* I now know where this bottle originated!
* The decanter was made in Bremen, Ohio by Erickson Glass Works between 1943 and 1961.
* Designed by Carl Erickson, it is called a Genie decanter.
* The clear version will be hard to find as it was not in demand when Erickson was in production.
* The version with the colored bottom is called a flame decanter. Green and smoke were the most popular flame colors. I've also seen amber and amethyst.
* We will never know for sure, but I suspect they used a green flame because we have never seen the decanter with any other color inside, have we?
* BHE pointed out that there appears to be marbles (or something) in the bottom. I wonder why they did that!

* Ours, the one on the right in the top row, has a very small flame.
* These decanters were handmade so each one is slightly different, including the position of the rings on the neck.
* It has four applied rings (2 sets of 2) around its neck and ours stands 10.75 inches tall to the top of the neck.
* If I am correct, the stopper is not original.

*See the section below, B019Stopper, for information on the stopper.

B019Stopper

TOS Let That be Your Last Battlefield - STOPPERS

* I created a separate section just for the stoppers, because I get a LOT of questions and comments about them!

* BHE tells me these stoppers are called STEEPLE STOPPERS
* The stoppers used on screen look like they have either 4 facets, or 6 facets, but this is DEFINITELY an optical illusion.
* BHE sent me some blowups of the screen used decanters with superimposed black lines proving that the stoppers have 8 sides. (Below, next to the screen cap.)

* All our stoppers have 8 sides (facets).
* The correct height appears to be around 4.5 inches from the bottom of the neck to the point.
* HOWEVER, if your stopper has an unusually long neck, that wouldn't apply.
* Shown below are some of our stoppers (I will be replacing this with a better photo but it's all I have at the moment)
* As you can see, the first two have almost the same size steeple but the neck on one is much longer.
* I think the height of the steeple should be between 2.75 and 3 inches
* Don't make the same mistake I did and buy one that's waaay too small! It will NOT work!

* I will be taking photos of each of these stoppers in my decanters so you can see how each size/neck looks in each.



* Given that the Erickson decanter is hand blown, and the neck varies, the MOST IMPORTANT THING is that you find one that fits and looks right with your particular decanter.
*
* I have seen many of these stoppers for sale on eBay with antique Bohemian decanters decorated with gold, like the ones in the eBay pix shown below.
* They are usually expensive, but if you're diligent you can find a deal: for instance a decanter that isn't in great shape but the stopper is.
* I managed to convice one seller to part with the stopper only, which saved me a lot of money on shipping.
* In some photos, the stoppers appear to be too tall, but that may be an optical illusion because ours is the right height. ASK FOR MEASUREMENTS!
*
* If you buy a stopper on eBay make sure you ask the seller for every dimension - height, width, number of facets, and the circumference of the stem.
* You can do this with Replacements.com , too. Call them and ask them to measure the one you want. They WILL do it!
* If the stem is too big for your decanter, a glass place can grind it down for you
* If the stem is too small, you can wrap clear tape around it.
*
* In the second row is a photo of our two bottles, with their stoppers, and a glass.
* You can see that one of our stoppers sits too low, but I love the way that bottle looks in person!





* Heisey Prism Band decanter has an 8-sided pyramid stopper that is 4.5 inches long and is sometimes available on Replacements.com .
* Rain M. tells me the Prism Band stopper stem is TOO BIG for the Erickson decanter but it can be ground down.
* Shown below is the Heisey Prism Band stopper, and a photo Rain sent me of the Erickson decanter with the ground down stopper.

* BHE also uses a Heisey stopper for his Erickson decanter, and he suspects that all Heisey steeple stoppers would be the right size and shape.
* But, if you look at the two Mikasa stoppers in the photo above, they are different. Heisey stoppers may also be different.
* BHE provided a photo of his stopper, with measurements, which is shown on the right below.
* If anyone else has proof that other Heisey stoppers work, please let us know.
* These stoppers do not work for the Calvert decanter.





* Many Mikasa decanters come with a 6-sided pyramidal stopper.

ENT In a Mirror Darkly II - Hoshi Sato pours Archer a drink
filling suggestions: Carnivo XO, Midori, Shaka Kiwi


* IAW described the bottle as 11.75" by 4" without the stopper. It has 8 ridges.
* I found ours on eBay, empty and with no identifying information.
* I have seen many bottles in this shape but they are either the wrong height or have the wrong number of ridges.



Comments:
* I found another one of these, filled with pepper vinegar, but although this one is full, it has no identifying information!
* And, I found a third one, filled with beans, beppers, and onions. Again, it had no identifying information!
* It is very similar to other bottles I have found at Hobby Lobby.

ENT Two Days and Two Nights - Risan wine

* I FINALLLY found one of these after 2 years of looking!
* It is 11.25" tall, 5.33" at its widest, and 3.5" deep.
* It is filled with "Delicious Citrus Vinegar" and is distributed by Gourmet Art of Vermont.
* The address on the bottle is 149 Lorry Road, Williston VT 05495
* The UPC code is 6_36113_02104_7 .
* I found an online listing for them at GiftBasketSuppliers.com but have not had a response to my inquiry.
* The site lists their contact numbers as 802-660-3067 or 888-333-5059 but when I call them, they have been disconnected.
* The stopper is from the "chili vinegar" by the same company.



Comments:
* Labels for these bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .
* Until I found the real one, I was using a bottle that is similar in shape and originally contained red beans and rice.
* I recently found this same bottle at Hobby Lobby, filled with peppers and olives, reduced from $14 to $7.
* In June 2010 John alerted me to the fact that it was available online at Hobby Lobby .
* This one is 13.25" tall, 5.5" wide and 3.5" deep.
* What's nice about this similar bottle is that it was easy to resize the labels to fit!
* The image below shows the on-screen bottle next to the Hobby Lobby bottle.
* Next to that is a photo of the bottom of both bottles.

The ubiquitous Saurian brandy

Filling suggestions: brandy


* There are several versions of this bottle used on-screen, three of which are pictured below. (The one in the center is a resin replica)
* The bottle was sold by Dickel Whiskey to commemorate their 50-year anniversary in 1964.
* BE AWARE that they released a similar bottle in 1980 with whip stitching on the leather. THIS IS THE WRONG BOTTLE!
* It is available in 2 colors - light amber and dark amber.
* The light one was used with the red holster, the dark one with the gold lettering. (We have both, I will post a comparison shot when I can.)

* We have two sizes, one that is 5.5" wide and 15.25" tall with the stopper (14" without) and one that is 4.5" wide and 13" tall with the stopper (12 without). Based on the image below with the kanar bottle it looks like the black bottle was the 15" size as it is taller than the 13" kanar.
* This bottle is also available as a mini so make sure you don't get the mini!
* There are always several available on eBay but many are in bad condition (mine arrived with a scorpion inside!) and some are missing the cork.

* The bottle has a leather "holster" embossed with "Dickel Whiskey" both around the bottom edge and on the handle. I was unsure how the prop department covered this and made the holster red (tape? paint?) and I didn"t have time to experiment so, for the party, I covered the writing on ours with red labels.
* Since then, I found a customized one on eBay which is just beautiful (shown at top row on the right):
* The writing on the bottle was covered with masking tape and then it, the holster, and the stopper were painted red and the metal hinges were polished.

* NOTE: The leather on these bottles and the thread holding it together is over 60 years old so you will need to be careful when you wash your treasure or it will disintegrate. The bottle I was careless with now has water stains on the holster, and the thread holding it together is nearly gone.



Comments:
* On one of the forums I belong to I learned that the red leather covered harness is covered with red tape, as is the raised lettering on the side of the bottle.
* If you zero in on the image it looks like the tape was applied vertically, not horizontally, which means they must have removed the harness.
* I find this hard to believe because the harness is glued on! Perhaps they cut the bottom off and then used the tape to re-attach it?


* Dan S. sent me photos of the way he customized his bottle, and I was astonished!
* He REMOVED the harness and used it as a template to build a new one!
* He painted the harness with a custom color from Angelus acrylic leather paint.
*
* BHE tells me that most customizers use Angelus acrylic leather paint. Their BRICK color is a common choice as it is a close match.

DS9 The Magnificent Ferengi - syrup of squill

Filling suggestions: Aperol, strawberry syrup


* Bottle was made by Morey Distilleries and came with a bail stopper. The holes for the metal are barely visible in the photo..
* I found ours on eBay.
* Our bottle is 12" tall. It also comes in a mini size so make sure you don't get the mini!
* Morey Distilleries website (thank you, John, for that link) shows the bottle used for their banana liqueur.
* It is impossible to tell from this screen shot what the label looks like!
* The label we are using is the one most customizers use.

ENT Rajiin - Triskelion whiskey

Filling suggestions: whiskey


* Another bottle made in Spain and available in many colors.
* Because of the design on two sides it is sometimes described as a cathedral bottle.
* Like the other Spanish bottles it is sometimes found at PierOne and Michael's for people who bottle their own vinegar.
* In June 2010 John alerted me to the fact that it was available online at Hobby Lobby .
* I bought one and it is very clear glass but the design is very faint, almost as though it was painted on rather than molded in.
* There are also fewer ridges on the neck - they are only at the edges, not in the middle.
*
* We are using the yellow version of the bottle and a coordinating label that I created using the on-screen one as a pattern.
* Our bottle is 12" tall.




Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio .

* The images below show the difference between the Hobby Lobby bottle and the ones I found on eBay.
* In the image on theh left, the HL bottle is on the left and the eBay bottle on the right, in the middle and righthand images, they are swapped.
* As you can see, the design on the HL bottle is very faint, and the multiple angles prove that it is not a lighting issue.

DS9 The Maquis - Vulcan port

Filling suggestion: Chartreuse green, cynar


* Acording to this video , by Penny Juday, the art department coordinator and archivist for Star Trek, this bottle originally contained olive oil.
* Nilva, aka Francis, found one filled with bath gel.

* Frequently available on eBay in clear, light and dark green, or blue. Also available in a variety of sizes.
* We are using the light green version and our bottle has a "mirror image" version of the label.
* The stopper was made from a plastic salt shaker with a brass filigree bead cap on the top.
* We have two bottles, one is 10" tall the other is 9.25" tall.
* Based on the photo in The Art of Star Trek where the bottle is shown next to the Ferengi Snail Juice bottle, I believe the on-screen one is 10 inches.




Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio
* Tape in all colors and sizes is available from Grafstick Tape and Label
* The red holographic tape used over the label is called Holographic Accent Tape. I bought ours on eBay. It can be used for the sticker on the lower left side as well.
* The green tape on the lower right side is ???.


B026

Yridian ale (DS9 Who Mourns for Morn) AND Altair water (ST III Search for Spock)

* This bottle with the exact same label was used for both beverages!
* At one time, I thought this might be a Cinzano Bianco bottle.
* It's readily available, not outrageously expensive (which would enable the prop dept. to buy a case of them) and there is no writing on the bottle.
* But my favorite customizer, Terry, says that it's a swing top and I'm sure he's right.
* The ones pictured on the right, made by Bormioli Rocco, are 1000ml (34oz) square swing top wire bail bottles, widely available.
* IAW sold theirs as "Yridian Ale" but Penny Juday called it "Altair Water"

* I think the stopper for these was made from a round wooden cabinet pull like this one, painted gold.

Step neck bottle
* This bottle was used for at least 3 different drinks - from left to right:

Romulan Ale (DS9 Inter Arma Enem Silent Leges),

Ennan VI Ale (TNG Time Squared), and

Altarian Brandy (TNG Manhunt).

Romulan Ale (The Wrath of Khan)

Romulan Ale (Star Trek: Picard Season One)


* I am POSITIVE this was made by the prop department.
* There are now instructions online for how to build one using a 3D printer
* And . . . there is someone on eBay selling a kit for $175.

* I was able to find a plastic bottle with a similar neck at World Market, sold by 1Liter Water.
* John and I are currently trying to find a way to apply this plastic bottle to the outside of a glass one to approximate the appearance of the screen-used one.

* In the second row, the bottle used in Wrath of Khan shown on the left.
* In the middle of the second row is the bottle from Wrath of Khan, auctioned by Profiles in History in June 2016
* In 2011, Paul S. on the The Replica Prop Forum (TheRPF.com) produced a copy of this bottle in acrylic and sold them for $350.
* The copy is shown on the right in row 2. No, there are none left.
*
* The version used in Star Trek: Picard Season One is shown on the left in row 3 (photo provided by EPH).




* The bottle from Inter Arma Enem Silent Leges was auctioned in August 2015 and sold for $1000 (No, I did not win it, I stopped bidding looong before it went that high.)
* It was described as being 12 inches tall.
* There is a screen cap of the auction page below, and below that a close-up of the neck so you can see how it was constructed.
* There are now instructions online for how to build one using a 3D printer.

ENT Dr. Phlox Sickbay bottle lot

ENT 3:21 E2


* Original bottle was made by Evian between 2000 and 2004 as a holiday collector set. Every year the color of the cap and the design would change. I have seen it with a gold top and several different colors of blue.
* I think the gold one was used for these as there appears to be gold showing through on the bottle on the left where the paint has worn away from the top a little bit.
* Em and I are currently trying to figure out how they removed the stencil from the glass and then etched the outside. One can buy etching cream but neither of us has ever used it.
* The bottle is 10.5" tall INCLUDING THE CAP and 5.5" wide.

* Michael S. told me that a glazier (place that makes glass) is able to sand blast these to remove the logo and render them "frosted".
* In the screen cap you can see these bottles were made in solid colors as well.
* I have seen photos of screen used bottles on another collector's website and they came in white, bright yellow, Christmas red, and deep aqua blue.
* All of them have SILVER caps, like the one in the photo from IAW.

* Greg S. tells me he saw these in season 3 episode 17 or 18 used as a liqueur decanter, surrounded by glasses, by I was unable to find the screen cap.
* Please send it to me if you have one.
* Yes! Rain M. sent me some screen caps from 3:21!
* The bottle is shown with the ENT Cease Fire juice glasses, G008. Is the cap blue or silver???
* Based on the screen cap in the middle, we think silver.

* On the right in the second row is a bottle Rain bought on eBay, full, and had it frosted by a local artist for $9. She then painted the top. It looks perfect to me!

* Rain also tells me that there is a Krylon Frosted Glass spray finish that is an option for someone who doesn't want to go to the trouble of having the bottle sand blasted by a glass shop.
* You would just have to somehow remove the painted on labels.
* This link has instructions.

Miscellaneous bottles from Quark's exhibit in Philadelphia early 2010


* Bottle on left is a 4-chamber bottle made in France. It originally held different colored liqueurs. They were hand made so sizes will vary. Ours is 11" tall.
* Bottle in middle is frequently available on eBay filled with vinegar and/or vegetables. Ours is 10" tall (it looks like the neck on ours is too narrow).
* It is also available in a small 6" size which you do NOT want!

* I now belive the bottle in the middle might have ben made by Holmegaard, but even that one isn't exact.
* Bottle on right was made in Spain. I have seen it in red and yellow as well as the green shown above. Ours is 11.25” tall.
* Photos of my bottles are below.
* In the second row are what the bottles looked like before they were cleaned.
* The bottle on the left is a four-chamber bottle that held four different flavors of liqueur.
* The example featured was sent to me by Nilva. Multiple manufacturers used a similar bottle.
* If you can find one with the original stoppers, like Nilva's, they look fierce!

* If you number them from left to right, 1 thru 7, they are as follows:
1) made in Spain, occasionally available on eBay
2) Vulcan Port bottle in green with a different label
3) made in Spain, occasionally available on eBay in a variety of colors but I suspect this one is painted. Ours is 12.75" tall.
4) Vulcan Port bottle in blue with a different label
5) same bottle as number 7 but this one has been painted and sports the Triskellion whiskey label, upside down!
6) unknown, probably made in Spain
7) frosted white bottle made in Spain. The used one I found on eBay had some creamy pink residue inside so I suspect it was once used for body lotion or some other beauty product. Our bottle is 13" tall.
I don't have screen caps of any of these. Our bottles are shown below.

STX Nemesis
STX Shinzon Screen Test

* There are at least 6 different bottles used to serve Romulan Ale!
* Three of them were production made (see B028 above)
* The ones below are found items!
* In the top row, the decanter on the left used in ST Nemesis is called a ring-neck captain's or ship's decanter. This one is 8" by 9" with a ball stopper and three applied rings.
* In the second row is a bottle that I THINK is the clear version of the eelwasser bottle. Ours is 10.75" tall.
* In the bottom row the triangular jar from STX Shinzon Screen Test, is blue tinted glass 10.5 X 4 X 4 X 4 inches sold by IAW

* These decanters are made in Spain to serve wine and are available in clear and amber.
* They are available in all sizes (literally, every one is different) from the 1/2 cup miniature size to a full liter size.
* They are frequently covered with embossed leather depicting Spanish tourist scenes - bullfighter, flamenco dancers, etc . . .
* They are called Porron decanters and are available on eBay. I have also seen them at World Market occasionally.
* We have 4 different sizes as they are very easy to pour from.

* 15" tall bottle also seen in both pink and green.
* The two bottles in the center pic are from Riann"s quarters in ENT Civilization

DS9 Quark's carafe

* The coveted color of this carafe is the red one, since Quark used that the most.
* In this shot from Quark's bar, in the top row, third from left, is a blue version. There are screen caps of a green one, too.

* (In the second row from the top, underneath the carafe you can see the languor bottle holding a green liquid.
* And next to that, the blue version of the Triskellion Whiskey.
* All of these are proof that the prop department used many different colors of the same bottles AND filled them with different liquids.)

* The image in the middle is of another fan's carafe in the coveted red color.
* I found a green one on eBay and there was a second green one on Etsy. I have never seen a red one or a blue one in person.
* I now have this carafe in all three colors - red, blue and green.
* They arrived in the box shown in the second row, with a sticker showing they were originally sold for $12.99!
* My understanding is that they were sold at Trek Conventions, hence the AS SEEN ON STAR TREK DS9 logo on the box.
* The manufacturer is BMF out of West Germany (the small n possibly stands for Nagel), and they called it an Insulating Jug
* Ours is 10.5" tall and 7.25" wide at the base.

DS9 - Ferengi snail juice

Filling suggestion: Amaretto


* I think this is an olive oil bottle but the only one I could find was Viansa which is too small, so it must be a tequila bottle.
* Arette tequila comes in a similar bottle but it is outrageously expensive!
* The imprint just under the neck is a circle with a coat of arms inside it which might have something to do with the name of the product.
* I bought our small one from a customizer, Terry Jewell , and the large one on eBay.
* The small one is 11" tall and the large one is 15.5".
* Based on the photo in The Art of Star Trek I believe the on-screen size was 15" but I was unable to find a screen shot of either size.




Comments:
* Labels for this bottle are available from John Harrington of Cedar Street Studio John cleaned up the Ferengi stamp portion of this label.

* The photo below is of a PURPLE bottle I won on eBay.
* Bottles this color are normally due to the presence of manganese in the glass which has reacted to sunlight.
* Manganese (supplied by Germany) was used to clarify glass (turn it from light green to clear) PRE-WW1. When the war started supply was interrupted and newly discovered selenium was used instead.
* What this means to me is that this bottle's mold has been around a LONG TIME!

DS9 The Assignment, In the Cards - Wee Bairns whiskey
* There were two bottles used for this beverage, and two different labels.
* In the top row, the bottle is made in Spain and available on eBay in several colors.
* This bottle was also used for the blue version of Kanar.

* The bottle in the second row I stumbled over on on eBay. I think I was doing a search on "square bottle" but I have tried that again and again and nothing comes up!
* It was described as recycled glass but I don't know how the seller knew that.
* What gives it such a unique shape is that there is an oval-shaped indentation on three sides.
* There is a mold seam around the base and along two of the sides. You can see the seam clearly in my photo and faintly in the screen cap.
* There are no other marks anywhere.
* The photo on the right in the second row are my attempt to show the indentations, which were very had to capture.
* The bottle is 9.25 inches tall by 4 inches square.

* The images in the middle of both rows are from The Art of Star Trek

VOY Alliances - Kazon
* These were made by MacKenzie-Childs but the pattern was discontinued long ago.
* They told me the pattern name was "CIRCUS OCTAGONAL GLASSWARE" and that it was part of their regular line, not custom.
* There appear to be many designs within that pattern and I have not yet found out specifically which one this is.
* When it was available, the pitcher sold for $80 and the tall glasses for $42 each.
* It shows up on eBay occasionally described as "stripes and marble".

ENT North Star - Skagaran whiskey
* Described by IAW as a glass bottle, made in Italy, and painted metallic silver.
* Dimensions are approx. 12.75 X 3.5 inches diameter.
* I have not yet seen a bottle like this anywhere.

* I found several of these bottles on eBay - in clear glass. I will post a photo ASAP.

DS9 The Way of the Warrior - Klingon Bloodwine
* These bottles were made by the prop dept from Jose Quervo margarita mix bottles.
* Cutouts made from corrugated cardboard were glued to the glass and the bottle was painted metallic silver.
* The one sold by IAW was 13.25" tall by 4" wide by 3" deep.
* There are instructions on how to make your own here.
* Sorry, the link above is dead, probably because the bottle it was based on is no longer available (see below).

* These glass bottles are no longer available, having been replaced with plastic, but may still be available on eBay.
* I bought ours from a customizer, Terry Jewell .




Comments:
* John found some STRAWBERRY margarita mix in a glass bottle so I checked our local store and the strawberry flavor were still in glass there, too, so perhaps only the regular flavor is now sold in plastic.



There is a wine company in California that is making Klingon Bloodwine! It's not sold in this bottle, but the bottle is very cool!
Here is a link to it: Star Trek Wines Klingon Bloodwine

TOS Journey to Babel - decanter
TOS By Any Other Name - decanter (added courtesy of Mark B who sent link to screen cap)


* All I can say about this decanter is that it looks like clear glass and the stopper appears to have a blue tip.
* I have not found anything yet that even resembles it.

*
* UPDATE: It amazes me how a photo can distort the way something really looks!
* The first line above describes how this decanter looked to me when I first saw the picture.
* I am now pretty sure I've found it!
* The one I found is Bohemian carnival glass with a very light gold finish and painted blue stripes.
* It is 11.75 inches tall including the stopper.
* So . . . the only thing I was right about is that the stopper has a blue tip!




* I have only seen this decanter on eBay one other time, attributed to Loetz.
* I did not buy it. A screen cap of the listing is shown below.
* I removed the price because it did not sell.
*
* I DO NOT BELIVE THIS BOTTLE SHOULD BE ATTRIBUTED TO LOETZ
* The seller provided NO substantiation for the claim - no reference number, catalogue entry, or other similar items proven to be Loetz.
* If you research Loetz, you will see that his creations were opaque with much heavier iridescence.
* I asked them why they thought it was Loetz and they did not answer my question.
* If you have proof of its provenance, please send it to me!!

TOS Journey to Babel - decanter
TOS Errand of Mercy - decanter

* The neck and stopper on this decanter look like they're amber.
* It appears to be filled with an orange liquid which makes the decanter look orange.
* The shape is distinctive, with a tapered neck and no rings.
* It may even be another Bohemian carnival decanter like the one above.
* Or, it could be the Mikasa Grosvenor decanter except that did not come in amber.


* The screen cap on the left is from Greg Schnitzer who was working with me to locate this bottle.
* The screen cap in the middle is from BHE and shows that it was clearly AMBER, not clear!
* I'm leaving the above comments intact because they still apply.

* In June 2012 I stumbled on a decanter that I feel is the EXACT SHAPE including the NECK (no lip) and the STOPPER.
* The problem is that it's clear, not amber.

* I shared this bottle with BHE, who found a way to make this bottle amber!
* His bottle is shown in the middle of the second row, next to another screen cap.
* I will share his instructions shortly.

* There is a problem with this bottle, though: the bottom flares out a little and the on-screen one doesn't.
* So, this may NOT be the original bottle after all!
* If it's close enough for you, it's a Jack Daniels Gold Medal No. 7 back bar bottle. (scroll to the bottom)
* If you have any thoughts on this, please share them!

TOS A Taste of Armageddon - Trova decanter
TOS Journey to Babel - decanter

* I originally thought this decanter was Scandinavian.
* Then, I thought it was Blenko, based on the decanter on the right, sold on eBay as "Blenko" (but with no label).
* There was nothing like this in the Blenko catalogs up through 1960 and I could not justify buying the 1962-1974 catalogs to check my theory so I contacted the West Virginia Glass Museum and they told me this:
* It was made by Bischoff in 1963, the only year that the company was owned by Lancaster Colony, AND the year that Wayne Husted (formerly of Blenko) joined Lancaster to head their production and design department. So, this piece was probably designed by Wayne Husted, but produced by Bischoff not Blenko.
* I have seen a short version of the amberina color for sale on eBay with a Rainbow sticker on it so I suspect that is a copy and may be slightly different.
* BHE tells me that Rainbow Art was another Ohio Valley glass manufacturer, and some of the same people from Blenko worked there, too, hence the design similarities.

* On the right in both rows below are the two bottles I own, both of which are wrong!
* On the top row, the bottle is obviously too short, but it has the correct lip and stopper. It was sold to me as Blenko but had no lable.
* On the second row, the bottle is the correct height but has the wrong lip and stopper. It has a Rainbow sticker on it.
* The stopper from the short bottle does not fit the tall bottle. It can be used, but it's too narrow, so it sits low and it leans.
* What this tells me is that THE NECK ON THE RAINBOW BOTTLE IS WIDER THAN THE BLENKO.
* In the photo comparing the two stoppers you can see the difference. The blenko is more elegant.

* My tall bottle (remember, it has the wrong lip) is 3 inches wide at the bottom, 4.5 inches from the bottom to the shoulder, and 13.5 inches from the bottom to the lip.

* In the middle of the first row is a close-up of the correct lip - it curves in a little. You may notice that the stopper in my bottle sits lower in the neck than the one in the screen cap. That's because these were hand blown and every neck and stopper is slightly different. The stopper from one bottle may not fit the neck of another identical bottle.

DS9 Who Mourns for Morn - Bolian Tonic Water

* Squarish bottle with a label that looks familiar but which I cannot place!
* I'm pretty sure now that this is a gin bottle, either Gordon"s or Bengal.
* If it is the Rawleigh bottle I found on eBay, shown in the center, then at one time it held poison which is why I sanitize the bottles I buy before I use them!
* These bottles are available in many sizes. The largest I've found is 9" tall.

* Terry Jewell just sold me one of these bottles!
* The bottle is the same one used for the Wee Bairns bottle shown in B044, the one with the caved in sides.
* Terry called it Bolian Tonic Water.
* The photo in the center is from one of the prop makers. It shows the gold tape around the label, and the different stoppers this bottle had.

VOY In the Flesh - Single Malt
VOY Day of Honor - water

* Square tapered decanter which, based on the size of the glasses, appears to be about 8 inches tall.
* The glasses on the left are clearly the beveled edge tumblers with an "x" on the bottom (G001) described by IAW as 4 inches tall.
* I believe the decanter is the vintage Italian one I found on eBay.

TOS The Cormobite Maneuver - ???

* Glass decanter with gold-tone ribbed collar and glass stopper.
*This originally held Kentucky Tavern whiskey by Glenmore Distilleries.

* The one on the right I found on eBay.
* The bottom reads, "D-8 119 55 9 FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS SALE OR REUSE" so I knew it was made between 1932 and 1964 and that it originally held alcohol as that phrase was required on liquor bottles when prohibition was lifted.
* The numbers on the bottom each mean something:
* The D-8 is the distiller code (Glenmore).
* The 119 is the bottle maker's license number.
* And 55 is the date, so a search on 1955 decanter turned up the origin….

TOS By Any Other Name - very, very, very old Scotch whiskey

* I've known about this bottle for a long time, but Mark B reminded me that it wasn't on the site. Sorry!
* The bottle was originally an Old Rarity whiskey bottle circa 1940. (thank you Mark B. for that link!)
* The two we have are shown on the right. The older one on the right is the correct shape.

* So, as you can see, you can't just buy any old Old Rarity Bottle!
* The newer bottle on the left is not as boxy as the older one on the right - the shoulders are too rounded.
* The older bottle also has "Federal Law forbids sale or reuse of this bottle" embossed on the back, which was required on all liquor bottles sold within the United States that were made between 1935 and 1964.
* My husband drank the scotch in the newer bottle (which was still decades old) and said it was OK, nothing special.
* The correct bottle without the cork is about 6.5 inches tall.
*

TOS Journey to Babel -

* HBE sent me both the screen cap and a photo of his pitcher for this entry
* I lightened the screen cap to make the pitcher more visible
* It's a mid century martini pitcher - glass with a gold band.
* HBE says it measures 10 and 3/8 inchs high and 2 7/8 inches wide
* He sized it in relation to the saurian brandy bottle.
* While the band appears to be too thick, it's an optical illusion caused by the camera angle.
* In the center is a photo of his martini pitcher with his Brandy bottle and you can see the gold is the same width with respect to the bottle strap in both shots
*
