Anyone know where I can find one? I'm sick of the cheap plastic ones. They just don't look good.

In our "Crafty Shoppe of Little Horrors" on The Magic Nook, Spellbinder shows you how to make your own "Bottle of the Djinn" from epoxy putty or clay that you harden in your oven. Its roots are in the old "Imp Bottle" which has been in magic shops for generations. It also combines elements from routines of the "Chinese Bottle," the "Pea Can," the "Magical Block," and more. It uses none of the methods employed in any of these old stand-bys, but solves the same problems using new ideas and technologies. If you want something that is new from something very old, as in the Aladdin story, then the Djinn Bottle might be for you! https://www.magicnook.com/CraftyMagic/BZ01-01Djinn.htm

Thanks for all the pointers. Just ordered the one from collectors workshop. I like their quality and style.

Just a side note the collectors workshop bottle is now $60 not $45 as listed in the review https://www.martinsmagic.com/allmagic/close-up/haunted-bottle-natural-by-viking-mfg/. But hey it's been 15 years.

If I recall correctly the Viking/CW methodology is based upon the Thayer version which is not the same as the typical magic shop varieties.

I bought a nice one from Hank Morehouse in the late 2000's. He was selling them for under $20. I don't know what happened to his stock after he passed away or who manufactured them. I included some photos incase someone can identify the manufacturer.

Here's an interesting Imp Bottle that you can get from Colin Rose for £35 (that's about $45).

And here's a nice one that you can get from several places.

The least expensive source is Nikhil's Magic Shop where you can purchase one for ₹549 (which is $7.64)!
