Chest of Nostradamus, The by Collectors’ Workshop

What a beauty from George Robinson! The box looks amazing and intriguing with the chain. The effect is as clean as a whistle and there is absolutely nothing to find.

In effect you dangle the box from the chain in front of a spectator and inform him there is a deck of cards with a prediction inside the box. You ask him to mimic cutting a deck and count how many cards they have cut to and to look at the card at that position. This is all done in their mind. Next they reveal where they cut to and open the box and they take out the cards and prediction – the cards are not touched by the performer. They now count down to the number and show the card, it matches the prediction.

This is an clever idea which has a number of possibilities. The amazing thing is that the box and deck of cards are 100% ungimmicked and nothing is added or taken away. And yet you can always predict the card they will count too. When George puts his mind to something you can always be assured of the highest quality, and this is one of those items that surely will keep everyone guessing.

Highly Recommended for Collector’s and Performers everywhere!

(Notice: this is the original version made in Oak that came out in 2008. The later versions were made of walnut as can be seen here. I like walnut, but I think the oak version looks better in this case.)

    What a Beautiful Surprise

    New items from my good friend George Robinson at Viking Magic are few and far between. So when this item arrived in the mail last week I was particularly excited. The box looks amazing and intriguing with the chain. The effect is as clean as a whistle and there is absolutely nothing to find.

    It is a beauty George!

    Chest of Nostrdamus, The

    I just received my Chest from George at Viking/CW and it is an incredible piece of magic. The craftsmanship is top notch as you would expect from C.W. and the execution is flawless.

    George has constructed a great piece of magic that you will love to perform. It is so clever, and will fool everyone you show it to. The chest and deck are gaff free and are handled by your spectator the entire time.

    The Chest of Nostradamus is a must for any serious collector/performer. You will love it and use it.

    Diabolical and Beautiful

    This is a beautifully crafted chest that is another exemplary effort by George Robinson of outstanding magic that is a wonderful addition to any collection. Besides being beautiful to look at and handle, it is a diabolical effect. George continues to amaze me with his craftsmanship and attention to detail in everything he makes. A great effect that really knocks them off their feet!

    I highly recommend this to the collector and the performer.
