Super Deluxe Bow-Tie Mystery (Original) by Harries(c. 1938)
Swedish Magic Dealer Harries (who were founded in 1910) created this effect in the late 1930’s but took a break from production in the 1960’s/70’s, so when Supreme Magic Company created their own effect in the 1970’s called Tiddly Hi-Tie they claimed that Harries stole it from them. The Harries version is significantly better than the Supreme version.
Harries of Sweden are one of the last good manufacturers of parlor and stage magic, and this item is one of their best. Nicely made and colorful.
An empty collar is shown in an otherwise empty box and the lid is placed on top and left in full view. Five bow-ties are shown in a larger display case and the lid is placed on top also. A card is apparently freely chosen and that chosen color bow-tie disappears from the display case and appears pinned to the collar in the previously shown empty box.
For repeat performances there is a different color tie that can be used. It comes with all cards and ties, and everything that is needed to perform this right out of the box. It really is a lovely outfit and very easy to perform this miracle right in front of their eyes.
