Cork Penetration by Eddy Taytelbaum

(c. 1967) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Eddy Taytelbaum has no equal and inspired the mini-magic line that Alan Warner took on as the next generation with splendid results. Eddy invented this effect and like many of his creations, including his amazing Mummy, it is the gold standard for this beautiful effect.

I have seen others copy this effect, but there is clearly NO comparison to the original. The slide is so elegant as only Eddy can handcraft. It’s all wood with a beautifully applied dark green paint and his signature gold striping on the edges. The paint job is so smooth I can only think of Milson-Worth as the only other builder with such excellent results. It is hinged so it can be opened to expel any suspicions (the slide is ungimmicked). A brass hinge at one end keeps the slide locked closed.

Effect: A frame is presented with a round hole and a card with a matching hole. Place the card inside the frame with the ends sticking out either side of the frame, and entrap it with a snug fitting cork. The card is clearly locked into the frame by the cork. Then with a wave the magician pulls out the card from the frame leaving the cork still inside the frame and the card totally unharmed. The perfect penetration! The card and frame can be examined as they are ungimmicked and the cork can be switched if a full examination is required. Under normal usage the cork appears fair, but if a thorough examination is needed it will need to be switched.

    Wish I had more Taytelbaums

    Eddy Taytelbaum has no equal and inspired the mini-magic line that Alan Warner took on as the next generation with splendid results. This is Eddy’s cork penetration effect which, I am told, was invented by him.
    The effect is clearly visible in the images. The cork can be examined before or after the effect. I have seen others copy this effect, but there is clearly NO comparison to the original.

    The slide is so elegant as only Eddy can handcraft. It’s all wood with a beautifully applied dark green paint and his signature gold striping on the edges. The paint job is so smooth I can only think of Milson-Worth as the only other builder with such excellent results. It is hinged so it can be opened to expel any suspicions (the slide is ungimmicked). A brass hinge at one end keeps the slide locked closed.

    Considering its age, this sample is in fantastic shape, as mint as you can get…what a relief as I have seen many Taytelbaums in poor condition. But, then, these were intended to be used. I only wish I had more of Eddy’s work in my collection, but it is hard to come by and expensive when is does.
