The performer displays a beautiful ornate cabinet and removes the front cover showing it to be completely empty. He then replaces the cover and shows the cabinet all around. A beautiful vase is then shown to be perfectly solid and placed into the top of the cabinet in full view. Now, with absolutely no hesitation, the performer inserts four solid brass blades through the cabinet from side to side and front to back. There is no question they must be penetrating the vase because these blades fill the cabinet and there is no room for them to pass without striking the vase. Then to add an unbelievable kicker, a solid wand is pushed through holes on the sides of the cabinet! Remember, the vase is actually in the cabinet as shown in the first photo!
The performer again shows the cabinet all around, removes the wand and blades and shows the vase to be completely unharmed and still perfectly solid! The cabinet, the front cover, the wand and brass blades may now be handed out for examination, if desired. It is a stunning and inexplicable effect!
This beautiful magic effect has been inspired by one of U.F. Grantís finest creations called Bamboo Chest and Glass. It is unquestionably one of the best miniature illusions in magic ever created.
The entire outfit is extremely detailed with engraved floral motifs and each set has also been painstakingly and individually hand-crafted by our own exclusive artist.
The cabinet, without the front cover in place, measures approximately 10cms wide, 10.5cms high and 9cms deep.
The photos really do not do justice to this very elaborate piece of magic apparatus! This is, without question, one of the finest and most exquisitely detailed effects we have ever produced. It is absolutely stunning in appearance!
Special thanks to Mr. Tony Curtis for coming up with the name for this effect.
