Cabala by Trickery(c. 1999) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Cabala effect where a steel ball slowly passes through a solid sheet of glass in a box with holes at the top and bottom was originally made by John Snyder, Jr. and marketed by Thayer’s and Kanter’s c. 1936 and was known as the Steel Ball Through Glass – it came in a Ordinary and Deluxe version. And it was also sold by Davenport’s and Max Holden (through arrangement with Davenport’s) as “The Miracle Steel Ball thro’ Glass” which became the inspiration for this coin variation where the ball is replaced for a coin such as Coin of the Realm.
Effect: Howie’s version of Cabala is functional and a good deal for the money, but it is not a match for Dave Powell’s beautiful version here. Please notice the video on this page is of Dave Powell’s version not The Trickery’s.
Approx. Price: $45.00 (2000) ***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.
