In my opinion, this is still the best single person nest of boxes on the market today! The gimmick is perfect and it works every time with no issues or awkward moves. Of all the nest of boxes I’ve owned this is the one I actually use in performance.
Effect: Load right in front of your audience; no special tables, gimmicks etc. Imagine a beautiful mahogany treasure chest trimmed in brass and secured with a brass padlock. The performer borrows a wrist watch which he causes to vanish. The chest is brought forward to the footlights to allow a spectator to open it. Inside is a walnut box which the spectator removes and opens. This exposes another beautiful box locked with a padlock. The spectator unlocks this box and lo and behold, the missing watch is found resting safely within!
Remember this: The chest is always in full view. Once the spectator touches the chest, the performer’s work is done. There are no special tables or outside gimmicks. Nothing is added or taken away. All padlocks are genuine. The handcrafted mahogany chest, trimmed in solid brass measures 10 V2″ x 7″ x V I”. Both inner boxes are also made of select hardwoods with brass hardware.
(Notice: the padlock that comes with this is the one featured in the video, not the photo. The one I’m including looks better.)
(Notice: Use your own watch!)
