Mark doesn't remember who he sold
his Light Bulb Cabinet too.

It is not Tad Ware.

I spoke to him on the phone, he only
has Papa Blackstone's cabinet.

I'm also looking for his 'Disembodied
Princess' Illusion.

Anyone have an idea who might know?

The guy who bought the
disembodied princess lives
in Alaska...

I remember the Magic Auction website having a bunch of Mark Wilson illusions on auction some time back. Maybe they can give you some contacts for those illusions that sold. -Mitch

I did contact them.
That's how I found out about
the Disembodied Princess is
up in Alaska.

Mark sold the LBC seperately.
So unless he remember, hopefully
someone will know who currently owns it.

thanks tho.

I own Mark Wilson's "Globe Theater Illusion" which I purchased from him somewhere around 2002. It's a doll's house built to be a scale model of Shakespeare's Globe Theater. It was built by Johnny Gaughn for Mark's show at Busch Gardens, and is an amazing work of art. I have one of two.

Mark still owes me a Shakespeare costume...

Dave, thanks for posting.

However I'm only looking for the
LBC and the Disembodied Princess used
by Mark in the late 1950's.
