The Imp Bottle (Bottle Imp) by Colin Rose

(c. 1873,2000) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Imp Bottle (or Bottle Imp as it was also known)  was first sold in the United States c. 1873 in the Hartz Catalog.  The Imp Bottle was clearly described in Professor Hoffman’s Modern Magic c. 1876 and more recently in Dr. Albo Volume 9.   The basic idea was advanced considerably by Floyd Thayer when he invented the Mysterious Jug c. 1926 which was the same basic effect with a different and easier to manage method.

Colin’s version is nicely turned and polished and a talking point before the magic even begins. It will stand erect or lay down whatever you want but only if you know the magic secret! This beautiful little pocket trick lends itself to lots of fun and with a nice story line you can even add it to your current repertoire as a novelty.

Effect: A very good pocket trick, easy to perform and impossible to detect. The performer, having shown a small, neat bottle, proceeds to lay it on its side with the greatest of ease. Anyone else trying to do this will surely fail, as the bottle obstinately refuses to lie down for anybody but the performer. The bottle will bear the closest inspection, and the trick can be repeated as often as desired.
