Beautiful and classic. This is an original ball vase and hammer (or mallet) from Conradi Horster, 1905 to 1920 or so. All parts in great, if not, mint condition. Mechanically perfect. Fake snaps easily into and out of the hammer. Click photos to enlarge.
The rare Milson-Worth Transcendental Half. Ala the "Coin of the Realm," it's crafted in rich black walnut by Milson-Worth. It is quite simply one of the finest coin through glass penetrations ever made. With copy of original instructions. All finished wood with brass hinges. MINT, MINT, MINT. Click photo to enlarge.
You don't see magic that looks like this very often. 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 (also on sale on this site), this is Carl Williams homage to the original and decorated with distinctly Okito transfers. It's one of his Replicas of the Masters. Primarily made in green (twenty green were made). Only eight made in red.
When created by Carl's Custom Magic, they sold out quickly. No longer made. In original box with original instructions, wrappings and gimmick. Click to enlarge photo.
Price is $1495 plus US shipping and insurance.
Green version of same Okito-Williams piece of which 20 were made: $1295.
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.
This was invented in the 1940s by Mal B. Lippincott. This one is from the 1960s, probably by Haenchen. Click photos to enlarge.

Remove the locked box from the container and hand it to the person with the key to unlock and remove its contents. Voila! The quarter or ring. Magic! Well made with brass hinge and hasp. Original lock and key.
