Here is another, also sold on eBay as "Sword and Flag Knight Mirror". This one appears to be in brass...

Thanks, yes, I saw those and will be trying to source one from some local antiques dealers. Living here in Boston fortunately gives me access to quite a few. I'll post here if I'm ever able to find one or more.
I just came across this thread now. Yeah what a fantastic series this was. I agree. The best Sherlock Holmes made to date. I watched them all with my father when I was in elementary school. The acting by Jeremy Brett was superb. I'm glad to see you guys finding matching props.
I thought I'd mention that I found a hat that seems nearly identical to Granada Holmes's Homburg Hat. It a Borsalino hat and is available from Byrnie Utz Hats in Seattle (just give them a call—they don't have an e-commerce site).
Here is a grimy camera phone image of me trying one on and a few snaps of the interior. It was a few hundred dollars, as I recall, and authentic beaver fur.
My guess is that any original used in the production would have been likely to come from Lock & Co in St James in London (or similar), but those are considerably less accessible, especially for those paying in USD. The ones stocked by Utz appear to be in the identical style and material.
Given the cost and slight wonkiness of the Homburg, I couldn't resist and opted instead for a totally non-screen-accurate (and relative inexpensive Irish-made tweed) deerstalker.
That Homburg hat is fierce!
Was that a cane Brett used to shatter the Napolean bust at the end, or a riding crop?
A riding crop, I'd gather, given its short length.

In fact, if you type "horn riding crop" into a Google image search, you'll see quit a few examples of ones very like the one Brett uses:
This, for example.
Hi!So happy to get in here!I'm real Holmes and specially granada Holmes fan.Here is my crazy loved project-1/6 scale figure.Not completed yet, but I want to share with you some pieces I already haveSorry-will trie to post pics later-can't upload from my gallery
But hallo from biggest Sherlock fan in Latvia!
The thingie on the stand (far left) is a camera or some other object with a lens mounted in a board. Not sure if that's what you're referring to.Does anyone have a clue as to what the wooden (mirror looking) glass is in the background? I was hoping to find one someplace!
Here is another one of the vanity mirrors up for sale on eBay, but (setting the considerable expense aside) it looks too large to me. The dimensions given are 20.5" tall (about 52cm). That seems much too large for what we see on the Holmes mantelpiece. Am I crazy?
Great thread, everyone! As a long-time Sherlockian and short-time replicator, I was very happy to see this on the forums.

You can see better views of the hunting crop Jeremy uses in the episode "The Red-Headed League" (it's the same prop).
The hunting crop was one of Holmes' favorite weapons, according to Dr. Watson.

Bonds of London offers a "large bent Dublin" churchwarden that is a very close match to pipe number two at a most pleasant price. I can also testify (if it matters) that the pipe smokes very well. :-)
Outside dimensions including frame: W= 30.5" ; H= 39.5"
Width of wooden frame: 2" (all around)
Width of white matte: 2.75" (all around)
Dimensions of visible area of print (inside matte): W= 21" ; H= 30"

I'm new to this site and have been looking for the Reichenbach print for many years. If anyone is able to advise or if there is a downloadable version out there, I'd be grateful for any guidance. Thanks.

Yes, was his post deleted INTENTIONALLY ?
I commented on how good the likeness was.....and my post is gone as well.
The posts have been moved to the correct forum (Sculpting) as they are not props so you can continue the discussion there.
The sculpture posts actual exist in multiple threads and are still in the process of being consolidated into one thread in the proper forum.
Ah. Mystery solved. Thanks.
