I don't know about that Moviefreak.
On the news item it says :
" The most notable Item up for auction is one of the original polychrome painted ceramic genie bottles from the set of I Dream of Jeannie.
The iconic prop was used when the show switched to color, and replaced the original dark green Jim Beam liquor decanter with the more colorful pink bottle."
On the catalogue
"A polychrome painted ceramic genie bottle featured in the entrance hallway of Larry Hagman's estate 'heaven' "
And in the auction results "I Dream of Genie Bottle".
I can't see the word "replica" anywhere (?) :confused
You need to go to the actual Julien's Auction page for the item:
I DREAM OF JEANNIE BOTTLE - Price Estimate: $1000 - $2000
It clearly states
"A polychrome painted ceramic genie bottle featured in the entrance hallway of Larry Hagman's estate "Heaven." This is a replica of the bottle from the classic television program. Height, 14 1/2 inches"
The news people seemed to miss the mark with the info they printed, but the actual auctioneers and the listing of the item did state it. So I assume the buyer read it and was aware.
