5Hs Magic Boxed Set by Colin Rose(c. 2007) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I Love wooden magic apparatus as many may know and this gorgeous boxed set of fourteen magical pieces is the perfect Christmas present I gave to myself. This will be the third English boxed set of magic in my collection…the first two being the Millennium Collection and the Egyptian Collection, both by Alan Warner…impressive magic coming from our British friends. This set has that Victorian or turn of the century look to it, which I always find admirable to look at, if anyone has seen those antique sets on auction.
Effect: Many exotic woods are present in this set. I recognize Amarillo, African Blackwood, Purple Heart, Cocobolo, Padauk, and not sure of the others. The box itself has a beautiful grain…looks like Sapele to me, because of the characteristic sheen to the grain. The brass Five of Hearts disc in the lower left corner is a lovely touch.
The effects range from classical to modern with many sold individually on the Five of Hearts Magic site. You definitely get a bargain getting the whole collection as a whole. The instructions come neatly packed in their signature red corduroy bag. As usual, the craftsmanship is SUPERB throughout. This is definitely one of those items that photographs just don’t give it justice.
Overall, I am one very happy guy and anyone who collects magic should seriously consider this for their collection.
Approx. Price: $900.00 (2007) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
