I purchased the Mutilated Parasol by Abbott’s I paid over $500.00. When I received it I was in shock. I opened the package and the hankies looked small and torn. When I opened the umbrella, black paint chips fell all over the floor. There were white spots that I needed to re-paint. I also noticed that the change bag was not working properly either. I had to fix it.When I opened the Umbrella, it would not stay open and I had to hold it open. I noticed that the youtube videos with Marty and Duane Laflin performing it and the demo video online were versions of this effect from years ago that Abbott’s no longer sell. I was not aware of this when I bought it. This was very misleading to me. They should state that what you see is not what you get. Since they will not tell you, I am telling you. What they sell now is terrible. I just threw mine in the garbage. Do not ever buy from Abbott’s. I specifically wrote in my order to please check the product before sending it out. They obviously did not. Yours truly, Vincent. This is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So Help me God.
I just bought this after seeing a video of it performed. Yes. It looks exactly like these photos you see. It is a quality product. It is self-contained and convenient because you do not have to fill it or bring milk. It also does something no milk pitcher or regular milk glass does. It refills itself in seconds. Now the downside. You have to watch your angles and your audience cannot be looking from the top. I was unaware of this when I bought. it. But standing should take care of this. Also, I have heard reviews of a couple of customers who left the glass in a hot car in the summer and the milk evaporated. Since the milk is sealed, this makes the glass useless. But if you keep the glass in a cool place, you should be fine. This is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So help me God. So just take care of it, practise on front of a mirror, get used to the orientation of the glass and you should be fine. It has many uses. Great for puppets, also pouring milk in a newspaper cone or in a bag. Very versatile. I am glad I bought mine. Yours truly, Vincent
