I’m selling a bunch of my bottles right now and the Relics bottle was round one of stuff I’m parting with. I’m 99.9999% sure I have another one somewhere but anyway sooner or later I’ll get another one because come on who doesn’t love Relics???
It’s an 1800 Tequilla bottle, right?
That is correct
I’ve now detailed my newly-acquired “Relics” Aldebaran Whiskey bottle (arrived yesterday):
I bought the hemp twine and red tassle last weekend in anticipation of receiving the bottle, lol.
I think I’m going to fabricate a new topper to match the screen-used one.
If ever we can find decent close-ups of the label, then maybe I can add that too.
That’s a fine looking bottle you have there!
Does anyone have a more information or a good source for the Kanar bottle stopper?
Here are a couple of pictures of my original stopper. Original but not used on the show.
The top piece is plastic with a cork center and slides over a aluminum pour spout. It was originally white. The rubber stopper I added. I found this one in a thrift store a few years ago. From what I understand, this style stopper was once sold by Pier One Imports back in the 90’s. But they have not sold them in many years.
As for where to find them, I used to make resin copies of my original, but the mold has worn out and I don’t currently have any RTV to make another one. I will try and get some soon and then I can produce some copies.
I cannot seem to find the Vulcan Port bottles! Any tips?
Try looking in local thrift stores. I have found 4 of them in the last month at thrift stores around where I live. Give it a try. You never know what you will find.
I have been looking in them for months now lol
What’s the stopper for the Ferengi snail juice bottle? Is that a found object?
Probably a half dozen or more Vulcan port bottles on eBay right now although an unusually large number of them are cobalt blue. I just messaged you about a couple that seem right though.
I might be wrong, but I don’t believe the stopper on the Ferengi snail juice bottle was a found item. But perhaps Mike would know for sure.
The ones I make for my replica bottles are just a small green acrylic box that I get at TAP plastics and a piece of acrylic tubing. Paint the tube black, add the gold detail tape and glue the two pieces together, and you have a stopper.
What kind of gold tape did you use for the top? I have some but not sure how good it will look!
I use 1/4 inch mirror gold hobby tape that I get at a local hobby store.
I use it for the two stripes that go around the green cube and also around the black tube that goes under the green cube.
I currently don’t have a stopper for my Snail Juice bottle, but I will pick up the parts in the next couple of days and take some pictures of them before and after I make the stopper so you can see what I am talking about.
This is a great thread! I wish I still had all my old bottles.
That one will have to be cobbled together. I think TAP plastics carries the small acrylic box and tube(?).
Fan made stopper
Looks like one of the stoppers that I made. I like to use the black rubber corks.
Yes, Tap Plastics carries the green box (the top lid comes off. I just glue it on when making the stopper so it won’t come off during use). They also carry the tubing as well.
