This lot just went up for auction-
https://propstore.com/product/blade-runner/lot-63-live-auction-2017-set-dressing-decals/

One of those labels is the one found on the mystery bottle found in Deckard's apartment next to the ESPER.




Same bottle also appears in the Kitchen-

Holy ****!!!! I need to completely re-do my bottle... THANK you for sharing this!!

But what KIND of label is it originally?

I took the liberty to post this in a forum for Chinese language, hoping they will be able to translate it...

EDIT: Here it is....

五加皮酒
中国粮油食醋进出口公司监制

And the break down (quote from forum):

"五加皮酒 a kind of distilled liquor (Baijiu) with medicinal herbs (root bark of Eleutherococcus gracilistylus, etc.)
金钟商标 Golden Bell Brand (trademark)
中国粮油食品进出口公司监制 Packed by China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Import & Export Corporation.

This is a bottle label. Here is a similar one being sold online http://www.997788.com/a144_6275343/"


This is the label in the translator's link - similar, but probably newer/international version OR the English letters have simply been cut out of the movie labels AND replaced by blue background:

And check out the the prop label. It's super wrinkled and they just made color copy stickers of a single label that was peeled of an original bottle of Wu Chia Pi Chiew.

The original bottle is super bulbous and the label is applied in a wrinkled style-



The blue is definitely the words simply cut out from the label and a lined paper placed behind.

Great call on figuring this out!

Perhaps this goes on the bottle neck? The pattern fits....

Please somebody with photoshop skills clean it and straighten it out!

Remember to thank Nick. I just found the printable version of the label Wink

The blue background seems to go BEHIND the cut-out of the text...
