DISEMBODIED GIRL
AND ATA CASE
Sterlini Magic

Own a piece of Magic History and perform a great illusion that's in excellent condition. This can be done totally surrounded unlike many of the "Disembodied Princess" props. It can even hold a 6 foot magician (easily) or an assistant in performing the miraculous illusion by putting two blades through the head and torso and then open all doors and show how the head and legs remain but the middle has disappeared (as the head and feet sit in full view). It's then spun all the way around and illusionist puts himself or something through it to discard possible mirrors being used and to show that the middle is really gone while legs and head remain in full view. All is then reversed by closing all doors and person comes out restored. An extremely deceptive illusion, and this type is rarely—if it is at all—seen. It's well packed and ready to go.

 THE TRAVEL
DAVID ROBINSON

One of the most clever devices you will ever see. Designed by "Jim Steinmeyer" on the concept of master magician " De Yip Loo". Illusion can be found in Steinmeyer's book called "Technique & Understanding", highly recommended to all builders and performers!

The illusion: Before the trick starts, you can open cabinet showing it empty, close the door and start looking for your assistant. You then hear a knock inside the cabinet. You open the door and its your assistant. Now you can begin the trick. Magician or assistant can have this illusion done on them, as long as you are under 5 foot 8 and athletic. Door is let down like a draw bridge to show it empty. A person enters the cabinet and an assistant or audience member can insert the 10 swords in in the slots in front of the person. After all swords are in place, it looks like the person is in a jail cell of blades. Door is closed and the person inside puts a hand through a cut out in the door between 2 of the swords. Starting at the bottom, each sword is slid from front to back until all 10 swords are at the rear of the cabinet. Door is opened and the door slides of the persons hand and to the shock of the audience, all the swords have magically passed through the persons whole body. Illusion has over 200 feet of polished aluminum trim all over the cabinet with hundreds of screws and finishing washers. Illusion is beautiful and cutting edge. You can get 10 minutes of stage time out of the trick. Cabinet can be examined as well as every sword. Swords are hand made with oak handles and thick aluminum. No corners were cut in making this illusion. It measures 66"x32"x21". It sits on a small base. Base and swords pack inside cabinet for shipping. I would put this prop up against any of the main builders! It is true quality and very well thought out. It can be performed up close, surrounded and in any kind of lighting! You can have audience participation. This is the ultimate effect and will even fool magicians! This illusion really is amazing! You will be Very pleasantly surprised!

 BUSKERS ORGAN
FLORA AND COMPANY

This item is very rare and has not been built by Brian Flora since his passing over 10 years ago in 2002. The outer case of the organ is hand-rubbed hardwood veneer. This is the most popular finish for the organ front - red enamel, with gilt acanthus carvings. The design eliminates all of the complex valves and action required by all other designs for street pipe organs. The design uses a punched paper roll for its music. This is an open standard, as opposed to a proprietary system, allowing greater availability of music for the organ, and less chance of being left high and dry without a source of music. Punched paper music rolls are readily available. The design is also very light-weight. This isn't important if you're buying an organ as a curiosity or an occasional weekend diversion, but if you intend to troupe an organ with a show, the weight is very important indeed. This organ was built using superior materials for lasting value. Built with with aircraft quality ply-woods, select hardwoods, and state-of-the-art bearing materials. The John Smith of England design lends itself to stability and dependability, and the improved materials assure years of trouble-free performance. For instance, oil-impregnated bearings are used for the crank bearings, as opposed to the traditional oil-soaked wooden bearing block. There are roughly 450 individual parts in each organ, and several hundred hand-finishing processes to put them together into a Flora & Company street organ. Dimensions: 13-1/2 deep" x 17" high x 16" wide - Weight: 18 pounds. Includes: Organ, a videotape that will show you how easy it is to play and maintain your instrument, a tool kit, and one music roll. The item and accessories were never used and are in mint condition.

 SPEARED AND SHEARED
DAVID ROBINSON

This is an illusion that is based on the hiding principal of the Bo Staff illusion, but it is much easier for assistant to get in position. Prop is owned by illusionist "Psycho Jack" that is on this season of America's Got Talent". Note: In this illusion the girl enters in a trap door on top. All the 4 side doors are closed and she enters the box. Magician then takes a blade and divides the box in half. At this point you can open 2 doors on one end to show it empty but keep the other doors shut. Then close the doors and pull the blade almost all the way out, pause, then push the blade back down and open the 2 doors on the other end. You are doing this for laughs like in a Die Box trick. You can do this a couple of times for fun. Audience thinks the girl keeps moving from one side to the other. Then you keep 2 doors on one end open and you guide 2 wooden spears into the box, through holes in the blade and out the other end of the box. You rotate the illusion for applause. Then you finally open the 2 remaining doors to show the girl has completely vanished. Process is reversed and she comes out unharmed. A costume change would be a great touch for this illusion. Also note: Top even has a hand hole that the girl can wave out at some point when she first enters box. Illusion is brand new, super deceptive and can hold a thin girl that is about 5 foot 5. Prop is built like a tank. Cabinet does not break apart but the 2 leg units do unbolt from the table.

 

 MISMADE LADY

I was never told who the builder was but they were definitely
a professional. Every detail is thought out on this piece as it's solidly built and works perfect mechanically. It shows very minimal wear and none from up on stage. It was recently painted and comes with two costumes. I also attached handles to make the stacking/unstacking procedure easier. This is a great illusion that you can get a lot of mileage out of and it's ready to be performed as soon as you get it.

 NOT SO ORDINARY
MIRROR BOX
TIM CLOTHIER

Can be performed surrounded - This expertly built mirror production box was custom built by Tim Clothier in Las Vegas and was used for only one project. It was artistically themed as an ordinary wooden equipment crate that would be found around the house or that would be used to transport an item (company product). It is attached to a metal stand with wheels which keeps it elevated above the stage, so the audience can see under and around the box at all times. In effect, an ordinary wooden crate is shown elevated above the stage. It is revolved and shown on all sides. Front is opened and the interior of the box is shown to be completely empty. Front door is then closed. Top of the box is opened and handfulls of items are pulled from the box. Front is opened again and the box is still shown empty. This can be repeated. For a finale, the magician gestures at the front of the box and, when the front door is opened, the client's product, an animal, or final production item is now seen sitting inside, filling up most of the box's interior. Also included is a metal sign holder that attaches to the top of the box which can be fitted with a sign that says "Appearing ???????????", to be used in a presentation in which a client's product or a randomly selected item from the audience is made to appear in the box. It also has an option where the phrase "Dis" can be added to the sign, changing it from "Disappearing" to "Appearing" during the presentation, or vice versa. This is included as well. Box is built extremely well and the operation of the gimmick is very smooth. Production items not included. Includes wooden case.

 THIS IS HEAVY
JAY MATTIOLI

EFFECT: Invite a spectators on stage to help in a demonstration of muscle hypnosis. Seating spectator on a small wooden stool, the performer "hypnotizes" the spectator into believing a small silk handkerchief weighs over 1,000 lbs. An empty cardboard box is shown on all sides and placed on the wooden stool. Second spectator now invited on stage and is asked to place handkerchief in the box and then lift the box with its silk contents off stool, which proves to be a simple feat. But when the hypnotized spectator attempts to lift the box, he just can't do it! It is simply too heavy for him to even budge! The second spectator can even reach in the box and remove the hanky, which then allows the box to become light enough for the hypnotized spectator to lift off the stool. But whenever the hanky is placed back in to box, the hypnotized spectator can't lift the box at all. This becomes a riot for kid show audiences
as well as for adults - possibilities are endless.

If you have ever wanted to perform Jean Robert-Houdin's Light Heavy Chest with ease, without worry, and with deceptiveness, this is the only version that solves all the problems of previous versions.
Performer never touches the box during the routine.

Contents of box can become heavy while the performer is no where near the box or spectators, and always under his complete control.

DO IT ANYWHERE!
No Suction Devices - No need for a super smooth, glass-like surface to perform on - No giant disc for the floor.

Use a cardboard box which can be viewed inside and out on all angles! There is nothing to see. Very easy and stress free to operate, letting you focus on the important part of this classic illusion, the presentation.
