Red Chinese Puzzle by Alan Warner(c. 1986) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This unusual item involves a geometrical puzzle made up of one red piece and several white pieces which are assembled within a small wooden box TO MAKE A COMPLETE SQUARE.
The pieces are tipped out and the puzzle is then reassembled in the box to form a complete square once again, but this time WITHOUT USING THE RED PIECE.
The lid is placed back on the box containing the completed all-white puzzle, attention is drawn to the odd red piece remaining on the table, and then the box is reopened to reveal that it now contains AN ALL-RED PUZZLE WITH ONE PIECE MISSING. The spare red piece is then fitted into position, completing the puzzle once more.
BEAUTIFUL HANDCRAFTED APPARATUS:
- The box is 8.3 cms square and is made in solid, hand-polished teak.
- A Chinese motif set in relief decorates the lid.
- The two puzzles are made in white and red plastic.
- This beautiful piece of apparatus, which is easy to handle and completely self-contained, is handmade by the originator of the effect.
The apparatus comes complete with The Alan Warner Routine.
