It's amazing to see new items are still being identified so many years after the initial release of BR...

Shocked

It is amazing/boggling. I have a copy of the 4K version of the film, but nothing that will play it as yet. I'm a little afraid of that day... Very Happy

Found an ashtray similar to the one used in the interrogation room with Leon.
The inside is looking like asphalt, while the side are smooth and high gloss plastic Confused

Thanks, I'd never seen that type of ashtray before and when I saw it at that second hand store, it reminded me of the Leon's interview scene.

I didn't find either of these when searching for bamboo, etc. Apologies if these have already been identified/posted.

I shared this info on the Propsummit Facebook group a couple of weeks ago. I usually post here first, but couldn't find evidence that I have, so...

Oshibori-ire are bamboo trays used for serving wash clothes as part of tradtional Japanese meals. I actually had a couple of these sitting around in storage and didn't think about them until doing some purging. In the scene with Rachael sitting at the piano, it sits on top of/just inside the top of an ashtray and is angled forward slightly, in the direction of the front of the piano.

The glassware is (I believe) an old Anchor Hocking pressed glass pattern called Manhattan. Several purchases before and after of other tiered/stepped ashtrays, bowls, sauce dishes, etc. have lead me to this. The cigarette rests (which are are visible as "warbles" and/or bright spots in some of the photos) are three tiers deep (the ashtray has six tiers top to bottom) and step back in toward the ashtrays body as you go down.

If you think I'm off base, let me know. None of the reference photos that I have bring these into sharp focus.

There are two varieties of oshibori-ire in this style - one with shaved side rails, the other using unshaved bamboo for the rails. The body (the wings of which will fold up) of the trays may be made of rattan, though usually listed as bamboo. It appears that the bamboo rail version is what we see on screen (more obvious in the scene where Deckard is waking up Rachael than the piano scene).

The Manhattan ashtray is round with three cigarette rests. I can post an additional photo depicting that if need be. Anchor Hocking also made a pattern called Park Avenue. This pattern was a sort of "Manhattan revival," but is not identical. The Park Avenue ashtray is not the one used in the film, at least not on the piano, but sometimes gets listed as a Manhattan, and vice versa.

For a change, neither item is extremely rare or expensive.
