Multiplying Bottles (like Ken Brookes) by Show-Biz Services(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Multiplying Bottles was created in Chicago by Arthur P. Felsman in the 1920’s (see here for more details.). Ken Brooke c. 1950 created one of the most popular and enduring routines which was packaged and sold with Harry Stanley’s nine bottle set around the same time. For decades these were the bottles to get. And even today Ken’s routine is still the standard.
The best bottles I have ever handled are still the Magicus ones. However, these bottles look very like the old Ken Brooke (Harry Stanley) sets from the 1950’s and in some ways they are better and look more realistic than the Harries ones, except for the tubes. The tubes are cheap cardboard and not going to win too many fans. The one other issue with these bottles is that they are fairly narrow and so finding glasses to fit under them is not a straight forward task.
Effect: A Glass and a Bottle under different covers repeatedly change places. A bottle magically jumps from one tube to the other, then back! The performer and audience never seem to know where it is. Then a second bottle appears, then a third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and finally the ninth appears! There are bottles everywhere!
Approx. Price: $420.00 (2009) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
