Japanese Handkerchief Box by Michael Baker

(c. 2015)

This is a time-honored classic piece of magic apparatus first created in the 1870’s and know for many years as “Jap Box“, though that name has fallen out of favor in recent times. It can be used for productions, vanishes, color changes, and any combination of those. There are many sources for effects and routines to be found in magic literature such as Rice’s Encyclopedia of Silk Magic and Jap Box Tricks by Glenn Gravatt.

This beautiful box by Michael Baker continues to cement his position as one of the leading stage prop manufacturers today. It is very solidly made and the paint job is gorgeous. With Milson-Worth almost gone now (I believe Lyn Johnson will be retiring in 2019), Michael is about as close as you are going to get these days, and you won’t be disappointed. This particular box is known as a single flap, non-locking box. It is probably the most basic of the various styles, but also the easiest to work.

The main dimensions of this box are 8.5″ Length x 5.5″ Height x 5.5″ Depth.

Includes: Printed Instructions.

Approx. Price: $200.00 (2018) ***
