I am fortunate to be the owner of one of these beautiful boxes, as well! Absolutely stunning in every way! One of the most cherished pieces of my collection…second to the Milson Worth Oriental Die Box! These two look great together!
I am delighted to add this, another piece, to my Danis collection! I love the Sherlock Holmes "mystery" touch to this piece… and the woodwork is masterful, as usual. The cutout silhouette of Sherlock Holmes on the box is a nice addition to the box itself. I’m ready for another piece from Francois!
Well, here’s another winner from Francois Danis! It’s quite a beautiful piece… especially with the inlayed woodwork and the mother of pearl domino spots! I’ve never had or seen a Taytelbaum piece… but I would say that the workmanship is very close to it. I love the effect… and the routines Mr. Danis writes are quite good. I love this piece!
Wow! This is my new favorite Francois Danis piece! The craftsmanship of each piece… and the boxed presentation is stunning. The written patter is masterful… and very well thought out. I am most impressed with what Mr. Danis keeps creating. Keep ’em coming, Francois!
Simply the finest piece of collectible magic you will find… creatively designed, masterfully built, one of the world’s greatest magic effects… in mini form, and so darn cute! Of all of my collectibles… this is by far my favorite!
Francois Danis has done it again! This set of paddle effects is very attractive… and the routines are quite creative. The two mummy paddles are based on the old "parrot cages" paddle effect, using two paddles. The "Hercules" paddle and dice paddle combine to make a sort of "hot rod" type routine. The black is a simple chalk paddle. The routines and "patter" that is provided make for very nice stories while sharing the magic. The paddles have a nice feel for them… and are easy to manipulate the paddle move. Upon receiving my Chance Wolf Paddle Craft set (one of my most prized possessions)… I asked Francois to craft me a set of paddles… Francois Danis style. This is the finished product… and I couldn’t be more satisfied. He is now making an Oriental Paddle Collection… and I can’t wait to get that set.
