Thomas Pohle started his magic manufacturing business around the same time as Eckhard Boettcher opened his Magic Dealership: Zauber Butike, and they worked closely together. As is often the case, the name of the dealer was featured and the name of the craftsman behind the magic was sadly neglected. So I’m trying to change that one trick at a time!
This is a wonderful effect, based on an original Ken Brooke idea in which coins travel from under one tea cup to another. Thomas’s idea to use two frames instead of the tea cups make this a more practical and more amazing effect. The props are beautifully made by Thomas and they are bright and colorful. The original effect used a standard Boston Box and half dollars, but Thomas has created a custom box with unique Chinese coins making this a very unique and interesting looking item.
The amazing magic and craftsmanship of Thomas Pohle has long been unsung, and thanks to some initial exposure from Joe Long I am trying to help Thomas become a household name in the USA and beyond. Thomas certainly deserves it after creating beautiful clever magic for over thirty years!
