Mahogany Boxes (Nest of Boxes) by Hardini(c. 1999) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: A very clever version of the classic effect. Hardini’s Nest of Boxes is the ultimate way to reproduce a marked coin or a borrowed ring. It is one of the strongest tricks in parlor or stage magic! The ring reappears in the innermost of 5 nesting boxes. What makes this set so special is the fact that the largest box is locked and needs to be opened with a key. In fact, you can hand a spectator the largest box and key and, from there on, you do not touch anything! The spectator opens the biggest box and finds inside the next size, etc. Each of the smaller size boxes is strapped with rubber bands, which need to be removed before the box can be opened. All this is done by the spectator until, in the last box, he finds the vanished ring or coin.
Remember: All the boxes can be handled and examined as long as the spectator wishes. There are no traps or secret compartments anywhere! After you hand him the largest box and key you can leave the room (if you so choose). The set is expertly crafted by Hardini in Germany from fine mahogany woods. Each polished solid wood box is elegantly lined with rich red velveteen. The largest box is 5.125 x 5.125 x 3.25;” the smallest box measures 1.75 x 1.75 x 1.125″.
