Oriental See-Through Block Box by Michael Baker(c. 2016)
It seems to me that every builder of quality painted stage props over the last 40 years has tried to equal the finish achieved by the amazing Milson-Worth. I don’t know any builder who has done that yet, but I would say that Michael Baker has come as close as I have seen with this new die box effect. What a stunning beauty it is. Not only does it look beautiful but the vanish of the block is the best I have seen.
In the manner of a typical Die Box routine, a block is placed into a cabinet that has doors on top and in the front. The block may be heard sliding around inside. It continues to elude everyone, and finally the doors are opened and the side panels removed leaving nothing but a skeletal framework of a box. The block is nowhere to be seen! The block may be reproduced from elsewhere if desired.
The block that goes into the box may be seen from all sides. The box has been redesigned using techniques from stage illusions to make it highly deceptive. There simply seems to be no place for the block to have gone!
Overall size approximately 10″x6″x5.75″. Block is 3.25″. Perfect size to be seen easily. The box is decorated with beautiful Chinoiserie images. The block is a contrasting bright yellow with black accents and red Chinese characters.
