Ball Thru Glass
A beautiful collectors item. Although still perfectly usable. There are modern versions of this available and all of them probably twice the price of this beauty.
This I believe came from Davenports wether made by them or brought in I don't know. It is incredibaly well made unlike many I have seen where you can see where the gimmick part is. This has been made so that it doesn't stand out. The craftsmanship is outstanding!
The effect... A box is shown to have a hole through its center. Upon opening it it is seen to have a piece of glass filling the inside thus blocking anything from going thru the hole.
The glass examined and replaced, the box examined too and closed a small ball is placed in the hole atop of the glass plate. As the spectator watches the ball slowly decends through the hole penetrating through the glass and landing in their waiting hand underneath.
The box in its entirety is handed to the spectator to examine.
There are sadly no instructions but very easy to describe and perform.
A beautiful item to add to your collection either as a collectors piece or a working trick.
note... The pins holding the hinge in place are a little loose and could do with
"knocking" back in. (I'd do this myself but a sledge hammer might be
a little too big!
Otherwise this is in outstandingly good condition!
Spotty Dots - Ken Brooke (2nd hand)
Spotty Dots - strong version of the classic domino transpo, using pieces of black perspex with colored dots. Two pieces have red spots, two pieces have yellow spots. During the routine, the two red/yellow pieces magically change place a number of times. This set includes the ending in which one of the orange pieces grows into a jumbo sized piece. The jumbo ending was originally offered by Ken Brooke as an optional add-on.
a copy of the original instructions from the "Ace Place"
In good condition but the yellow spots are a little "faded" and could do with changing
Anverdi - Spares...?
Here I have two Anverdi bits.
A remote for a "Talking Skull" thats the black box at the top of the picture.
The bottom picture shows a box (containing the remote) that holds the keys for the "Anverdi Key Box".
their own not a great deal of use... But somewhere out there are the other halves
of these miracles sadly missing the remotes. Do you know who has them? Is it you!
These originated from the collection of Ken Savage.
So, if you, or anyone you know are interested in these bits, drop me a line.
Make me an offer? - email me
Vanishing Bird Cage - Abbots
Made by Abbots. This is the famous style of cage that Harry Blackstone Jnr. used in his shows.
This is probably the very easiest of cages to make vanish as it instantly collapses and due to the red edging whioch covers all the joints there is nothing that can "catch" on your sleeve.
is the Larger model Dimensions 5.5" x 5" x 4.5"
In very good condition.
No pull supplied
This is and incredbly rare SET of Joes paddles these were made and sold as a "set" in 2003 and sold via ebay, just before Joe relaunched himself back into the the magic business.
The set consists of
Red, White & Blue Paddle
It comes with a wallet made to carry all 5 at once, and also separate pouches for each paddle.
