Vintage Acrylic Nest of Boxes by Silray Magic Co.(c. 1965) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
What a unique and scarce nest of four boxes from the Scottish manufacturer: Silray Magic Co. c. 1965. Ray Silver ran Silray Magic Co. and enlisted her father, Jack Silver, to manufacture the amazing lucite (Perspex) plastic props. Jack had also run his own business c. 1950 called the Scottish Magic Studio. Ray Silver was also married to Edwin Hooper (founder of Supreme Magic Company) from 1957-71.
This is the first time I have even seen these boxes and they would look perfect in your collection. Complete with ribbons and key for the outer lock. Highly Recommended for collectors of fine, vintage magic.
Effect: These boxes are a great example of the lucite medium. Not only do these high-quality boxes look great they use an approach that is different to all of the nests of boxes I have seen. They use a variation of the Berg method with the big difference that you can briefly show the bottom of the third box and it appears to be whole. This is accomplished by a clever locking mechanism that traps the smaller box inside precisely at the right location so that it looks like the actual base of the box.
Approx. Price: $295.00 (2018) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
