Effect: Performer places several borrowed coins into a glass goblet. He covers the goblet with a handkerchief. A second goblet is placed underneath the handkerchief, on top of the first goblet. Audibly, each coin penetrates from the top to bottom glass. (Up to four coins.) No sleights. Glasses can withstand meticulous examination.
As the images show, it’s a coin penetration of four coins from the top to bottom of two stacked brandy sniffers. Now, the method is utterly diabolical and rather daring, but the illusion and effect comes off as real magic. The coins are actually heard clinking into the glass one by one before the handkerchief is whisked away. It should be mentioned that the brandy sniffers are not gimmicked in any way.
The storage cabinet for the brandy sniffers is a beauty of smoothly finished, solid walnut construction with elegant brass touches as seen. The inside is lined entirely with green felt to protect the glassware. Overall, a favorite among the few select CW pieces I hold in high esteem for both beauty and mechanical ingenuity.
