Circa 1935. This is a four-page promotional folder for Dr. Harlan Tarbell. Good condition with three holes punched for notebook. Filled with photos, quotes and descriptions of the Tarbell Course author and illustrator.
Ever seen this? A completely unique revelation of a previously selected card. The card appears between the ears of the rabbit! PLUS two cards rise from the houlette that the rabbit is holding. Owen Magic quality. Mechanically perfect. Very good. Click to enlarge photos.
It's so breathtakingly beautiful that the few who own them keep them on display and don't perform them. Based on the Delben blotter, this is Carl Williams' homage to the original and decorated with distinctly Okito transfers (not decals!). It's one of his Replicas of the Masters. Primarily made in green, this is one of only eight made in red.
In original box with original instructions, wrappings and gimmick. A mechanical, magnetic wonder. Click to enlarge photo.
This is a pre-1959 (probably much earlier) blendo effect. A red, white and blue silk are tied together and, with a flourish, turn into a large American flag. This one uses a 48-star flag so you can make it historical. Click photo to enlarge.
This is Bob Kline's classic Copentro. Four coins vanish and VISIBLY reappear in a shot glass that's covered by another glass! It's all original including the coin stand, the base and the two glasses. Four copper coins included. Mechanically perfect. Entirely original! Circa 1950. One sold at auction recently for $660. (Yikes!)
Another Thayer mechanical marvel. Seen the bill in lemon? Forget it! This is sweeter. It's a ring on string (or ribbon) IN an orange IN a mahogany box. (Go ahead. Read that again.) It's a wonderful effect.
Wow. Just gorgeous. (Go ahead, click the photo to enlarge it.) This pedestal dates back to maybe 1912 and delivers a silk or two into a glass (bottomless or inverted) placed on top of it. Turned by Floyd Thayer on his lathe. Golly.
Price is $234.00 (Someone repainted it [nicely] or it would be more.)
Yep. These are the original Ninja Rings (the package reads: Ninja Ring) purchased from Shoot Ogawa during his first US lecture tour decades ago. These are the 5" seamless rings that are no longer available. Rare and mint in the original package.
Another Mysto Magic set No. 1. Different from the other one on this site. Complete with booklet and poster. Poster has one tear in edge (not touching image). Lid has two split corners and edge wear. Click to enlarge photos.
In 2002, Thayer/Owen Magic Supreme celebrated the 100th anniversary of the company with an orangewood & manzanita wand just like the first ones turned and sold by Floyd Thayer in 1902. Just 12 were expertly turned by Alan Zagorsky, owner of Owen (OMS). Rich and gleaming. MINT. (Click photo to enlarge.)
