So I now have 3 George Sickle Tennessee Whisky bottles. Two are large and lighter in color, one is smaller in color. Does anyone have any information about these?

We're they from different years? Which one is more canon for a Saurian Brandy Prop? We're the dark ones available in the larger size? we're the light ones available in the small size? I know there was also a tiny bottle made, maybe 187ml?

I have a half side of leather I plan on making into the pieces for the conversion. Any advice?

I have 1 stopper with no cork, but I will be replacing the cork ager I make a few more replacement stoppers. Trying to decide between resin casting in orange, or actually turning new ones in wood. I would love to know what collectors think of those two options.

Search bottle collector sites for Dickel Powderhorn for the particulars about which bottle was when. I've read, but I forget.

The lighter bottle is what you want for Screen Accuracy.

For the stopper, find a cork that fits. Get a bag of wood cones of appropriate size at your local hobby store. Saw one at the appropriate angle and sand the edges. Paint. Glue the cork to the bottom of the cone. Screw a screw eye into the top of the cone for the leather lace strip.

This is the paint you want

When it comes to props or filming miniatures, there is what it looked like in person, what it looked like onscreen, and what it looked like in our minds. In my mind, the bottles were a darker amber and the leather more of an orangey-red. When the bottles have booze in them, they tend to look darker anyway.

On the subject of color, were McCoy's brandy glasses actually more purple in person, or is this one I noted on Ebay last year just a different variant?
