Hook’s Chest by Magic Wagon(c. 2006) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This was an early and expensive (for what it was and based upon other items from Magic Wagon) locking Lippincott Box released by Magic Wagon. It looked intriguing and worked well, but the finish was not as good as some of their other work.
This chest worked like a traditional Lippincott box and in no way did it work like the Porper Strong Box, which some have alluded to. It could be examined at the end of the effect. The Porper Strong Box, 1.0 version at least, can be examined before and after the effect is finished and has a very different mechanism compared with other traditional Lippincott boxes.
Effect: This authentic-looking pirate treasure chest will allow you to vanish a borrowed ring or a singed coin in full view of the spectator with absolutely no cover. The missing object may then be found in any location you wish.
This little chest has a wonderfully clever locking mechanism on the bottom. The brass work mechanism inside was an amazing piece of construction!
The chest itself has been exquisitely hand-rubbed to display the natural, rich lines of the teak wood, and polished to a high sheen throughout. It is then secured with literally over 70 tiny brass nails and artistically combined with antique finish 925 sterling silver skull fittings. The inside floor is also lined with black baize for perfectly silent operation. This handsome little chest measures 2 7/8 inches wide x 1 5/8 inch high x 2 1/8 inches deep. It’s a stunningly beautiful prop.
