The Hathaway Handkerchief Cabinet by Hathaway, Haenchen

(c. 1935) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Classic Simplicity. Haenchen designed this Cut & Restored Hank Box c. 1935. He took the Hathaway version and basically turned it ‘upside-down’, removing the top and back and adding a front door. A great departure from the dark black interior of the original.

Vida Haenchen hand cut the stencils and Fred hand mixed the bronze metal and base to create the paint for the silk-screen process.

The method used is original with Haenchen and is a very clever and deceptive way of performing this effect. Between Haenchen and the Viking versions, approx. 200 were made.

Effect: A Real Mystifier, providing real entertainment. Cabinet has front drop-down door.
A borrowed handkerchief is threaded through holes in the ends of box (ends of hank at all times in full view). Magi de­ liberately cuts the center out of the hand, audience actually see this done. When to their surprise the hank is instantly restored. Our cabinet is the latest model out, precision built, finished in our own Moderne design, an asset, to any Magic Act.

    Classic Simplicity

    Haenchen designed this Cut & Restored Hank Box back in the late ’30’s. He took the Hathaway version and basically turned it ‘upside-down’, removing the top and back and adding a front door. A great departure from the dark black interior of the original.

    Vida Haenchen hand cut the stencils and Fred hand mixed the bronze metal and base to create the paint for the silk-screen process.

    The method used is original with Haenchen and is a very clever and deceptive way of performing this effect. Between Haenchen and the Viking versions, approx. 200 were made.
