These are made in Asian Mahogany, and when I first received this from my good friend George Robinson I don’t think I fully appreciated how cool it was. Contrary to what some are saying on the internet, these are made perfectly in George’s shop, but sadly this version has also been copied over the years by others both in India and Sri Lanka. The finish on the copies is not as shiny or as smooth and if you think you are getting the same thing from elsewhere for less think again, it is not the same and I’ll stick with the original version built here in the USA by George Robinson and his team.

When I received from George I remember thinking it was just a “fancy ball vase”! Well it is way more!

Great Job George!

_EF The basic routine is:

  • You show the Vase
  • Remove the lid and show the orange which you then remove
  • This orange multiplies into two oranges
  • And then an orange silk appears
  • You place the orange back in the vase and replace the lid
  • And when you lift the lid the orange has vanished too!

A really great routine which is surprisingly easy to do. Everything works beautifully and it looks amazing.

So how do you improve upon an already perfect mini-illusion? You make it in a Limited Edition out of select hardwoods (in this case Walnut, Cherry and Maple) and you sit back and appreciate the quality in your hands! This is easily my favorite item from Craig Beytien and his wonderful Illusion Arts Magic! The transposition between the two stands is so fast and effortless, you can’t help but step back in amazement!

It is quick to reset and from a short distance there is nothing to see. It is like a really slick, mini-version of the Substitution Trunk effect without the intense practice – the transposition happens in an instant.

The standard version of this item is here and can be purchased from my friends Joe & Mark at Stevens Magic!

Wow! Dean’s real Miracle!

This is truly a miracle effect from Dean Dill. Not only is the effect in the miracle class, but the props are too!

When you drop down this sort of cash for a trick it better be really, really good – but sadly it often is not. In this case however, you easily get your money’s worth. The table is beautiful and unique, the coins are flawless, and even the travel case is perfect.

The routine has been painstakingly thought through and the performance DVD by Dean himself takes you through all the steps. If only more manufacturers would follow through with this much attention to detail, we’d have a lot more great magic, and a lot less trash filling our shelves.

This effect is not self working, but it is certainly not difficult either, and when you spend this much on an item it is certainly worth spending a bit of time getting used to the routine. Once you have mastered the moves you will blow them away every time.

Thanks Dean for making perfect magic – you have set the bar very high for magic, for value, for quality, and for entertainment.

Most Highly Recommended!
