Khartoum Ring Fantasy by Collectors’ Workshop(c. 1988) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Think back. Somewhere in your childhood, you saw an effect so dazzling, so fully stunning, that you knew that, come what may, you would someday possess it. It should come as no surprise that our goal at Collectors’ Workshop is to create as many of those type of effects as we can. This is one of those.
Resting on the table is an elegant, but manifestly simple piece of apparatus. It is a gleaming golden hoop mounted on a polished pedestal. Hanging from the ring is a small loop of red satin ribbon. Performer borrows any ring from an audience member and, placing it within the folds of a handkerchief, hands the spectator the wrapped ring. Then, with a snap of the fingers and a subtle incantation, the performer instructs the spectator to open the handkerchief. The ring has vanished.
Speaking not at all, but merely directing his eyes, the performer shifts the audience’s attention to the velvet ribbon suspended from the golden ring. Then, with all eyes focused on the ribbon, the performer whispers a scarcely-heard command. Instantly, visibly, the borrowed ring reappears on the silk ribbon.
There are a few things you ought to know about this remarkable piece of apparatus.
- It is the spectator’s ring.
- The ring is on the ribbon.
- The ribbon must be untied to return it.
- This is a one-person effect – no assistants.
This apparatus has been fashioned with the exquisite craftsmanship you have come to expect from Collectors’ Workshop. The principle is entirely unique; it has never before been utilized in the history of magic: No reels, pulls, threads or sleight of hand.
It is a tribute to the genius of our chief illusion builder, John Good, and to the craftspeople on staff at Collectors Workshop.
