Absconding Queen by Milson-Worth, Harold Beaumont(c. 1936,1983) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
As far as I can ascertain the Absconding Queen was invented by the British Magical Inventor Harold Beaumont and first released by Davenport’s c. 1935.
Effect: Absconding Queen by Milson-Worth combines the two most popular items in magic – cards and silks – in an easy to perform, double-climax, knock-out effect. A wood and metal frame is displayed front and back along with an 18-inch solid black silk and a jumbo-sized Queen of Hearts card. Attention is called to one-inch holes in the centers of both frame and card.
The card is placed in the frame and the black silk slowly pulled through the holes. As the silk is withdrawn it appears to be undergoing a transformation until, free of the frame, it is clearly seen to be imprinted with the image of the Queen of Hearts! The card is immediately removed and shown to be blank, the image having jumped from card to silk! Precision made in the Milson-Worth tradition.
Approx. Price: $325.00 (2002) ***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.
