Color Vision by John Dahms

(c. 1986) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

John Dahms was a master carpenter by trade and when he retired he started creating some amazing magic. This is a small, but fine example of the classic Color Vision Box invented by New York Mentalist/Dealer: Martin “Kismet” Sunshine c. 1930. It was so successfully marketed by Adams and Co. that it became one of the most popular and pervasive magic props ever, and you’ll find one in pretty much every magic set and magicians drawer ever since.

This version from John Dahms is likely one of the prettiest you will ever see, with beautiful inlay work in the lid and a smooth feel to the box.

Effect: It is the perfect divination effect. Always ready, you carry the neat box in your pocket. Anybody secretly places the cube in the box, closes the lid and hands it to you. Holding it behind your back, you instantly name the color uppermost. Uncanny, certain and undetectable.
