The Johnny Walker bottle is a 1910. Empty bottles sometimes sell in the hundreds. Very rare.
Researched the stuff behind the Raven Bar for several months last fall. Found pretty much everything but was only unable to ID one bottle and two boxes behind the bar. Once 4K hits I think it will be a done deal. Still looking to pick up the search soon.Do you mind me asking how you know?
Any reference photos would be great.
The upper bound for the bottle and label must be before 1934 when Johnnie Walker was granted a royal warrant. Like most manufacturers, a warrant would have been added as soon as practicable to its labels. The label in the screen captures has no royal warrant on it.
Likewise the lower bound cannot be before 1909 when an extra label was added to the bottle with the text “Johhnie Walker Black Label."
Therefore can we assume the correct bottle and label was only produced between 1909 and 1934? Any more detail you can add?
UPDATE: Confirmed this as the correct size from the production still below captured from this documentary [at 19:47]The map room tape measure used onscreen but only partially in view, is most likely a pre-WWII German surveyor's model although we have no idea of its length, nor do we know if Indy brought it to the map room. Perhaps it was left by Belloq's team. Here is a period German measure for reference.
You may be right as this style measuring tape was produced up until the 1970s.Maybe this tape was just a tool from the filming crew?
That's something I would be very interested in!
Interesting prop! For any UK lurkers, there is one of these on the UK bay right now, branded "Griffin Coloured Legee". (Nothing to do with me)
