Bamboo Chest and Glass by U.F. Grant(c. 1966) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This is an effect created by U.F. Grant and the vintage versions like this are much nicer than the later imported versions that MAK sells. It is a wonderful effect and a fooler too.
Effect: Magi displays a beautiful Chinese Chest and a tall glass tumbler of water. The tumbler is placed and LOCKED IN THE CENTER of the chest so that it cannot move. Four solid steel blades are pushed thru the cabinet. Then a solid pole is pushed thru the center, from side to side. THIS LEAVES NO PLACE INSIDE THE CABINET FOR A GLASS OF WATER, STILL IT’S THERE! To prove the tumbler is still there, the pole and blades are removed. The front of the cabinet is opened, and there is the glass, still locked in position. It is removed and the water is poured out.
This is one of the best appearing apparatus items, and one of which we are very proud. Quality from start to finish, beautifully decorated and, most important, a real FOOLER. Can be worked both close up and surrounded. Complete with patter. You supply the water.
Approx. Price: $100.00 (2008) ***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.
