Astro-Ball Cabinet by Milson-Worth

(c. 1979) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

When Jim Simon of Worth Magic (before Milson-Worth) created the Astro-Ball Cabinet c. 1965 it caused quite a stir because Jim basically took Phase 1 of Stewart James’ Sefalaljia which was a ground breaking five phase routine when it appeared in issue 69 of The Jinx December 2, 1939. As Stewart James himself said in an interview with Jeff Busby in 1987: “I expect the originality in that version was the use of a cocktail glass.” Ouch!

Even so, the Astro-Ball Cabinet became one of Worth’s and later (this one) Milson-Worth’s most iconic and successful effects. The cabinet looked stunning and the effect was amazing with little effort on the part of the magician.

A beautifully ornamented cabinet 9″ wide by 7″ high is shown to be empty by opening both back and front doors. A solid red ball, 2 inches in diameter is placed on one side of the cabinet’s floor. An empty cocktail glass, on the other side. Doors are closed and upon reopening the ball has mysteriously arrived in the glass. No false doors, sleights, or cover. In fact all can be examined.

    I wish they were all so well made!

    One of the nice things about Milson Worth is that you just know its going to be beautifully made!

    This has always been one of my favorite effects: with the door closed the ball transports itself into the glass in the cleanest manner without any funny moves or covers. Although it is very simple out it works I think its a total fooler. You are left clean and the audience is left gawking. You can even hand everything out for examination.

    I own one!

    Even though this effect is not particularly spectacular, I personally love it since the craftsmanship, appearance and style is quite beautiful. Now a days its almost impossible to get one from Wilson, yet the one I own is equally the same in quality and much more. I tried extemsively researching to find one and the only person in the US who builds them and have them is Mr. Goodman from Texas. His price is extremely reasonable, fast shipping and custom made.
