When Jim Simon of Worth Magic (before Milson-Worth) created the Astro-Ball Cabinet c. 1965 it caused quite a stir because Jim basically took Phase 1 of Stewart James’ Sefalaljia which was a ground breaking five phase routine when it appeared in issue 69 of The Jinx December 2, 1939. As Stewart James himself said in an interview with Jeff Busby in 1987: “I expect the originality in that version was the use of a cocktail glass.” Ouch!

Even so, the Astro-Ball Cabinet became one of Worth’s and later (this one) Milson-Worth’s most iconic and successful effects. The cabinet looked stunning and the effect was amazing with little effort on the part of the magician.

This is the rarer Black and Gold version – the more common version is the Red and Gold seen here.

Effect: A beautifully ornamented cabinet 9″ wide by 7″ high is shown to be empty by opening both back and front doors. A yellow ball, 2 inches in diameter is placed on one side of the cabinet’s floor. An empty cocktail glass, on the other side. Doors are closed and upon reopening the ball has mysteriously arrived in the glass. No false doors, sleights, or cover. In fact all can be examined.
