I think you just need a tube of cardboard and wrap it with brown paper tape. Also have a look at www.woodencigars.com

If it was ever available commercially, it was probably available through George Proust.....I suggest you Email them.....or if you can read French, check their web site.

I bought one years ago from Stevens Magic Emporium.

It was pretty much just what Pete described. A plastic tube wrapped in what looked to me like masking tape and then dyed brown.

I have one question to you Dave V .Does your cigar have something inside to howd a sigarette , becouse Finn Jon's bubble came out of the cigar full with smoke.And I woud like to ask if somebody have Roynold Alexander Smoke in floating bubble?Becouse I wont to ask is the quallity of this prop good.And can I buy it from another site , not from Hanklee,becouse they not good in shipping to Bulgaria.They shipped it verry slow and verry expensive.I dont know to the ather countries but to Bulgaria is like this.Thank you for the advise above. :)

No, it was just the bubble tube. I think he switched it from a normal cigar once he filled his mouth with smoke. The marketed routine and gimmick didn't do anything more than blow bubbles.

Why don't you contact Finn directly. You might find him via Proust or Stevensmagic..

There is a book by Finn Jon in which he details how to construct the cigar. The cigar makes the smoke and the bubbles, there is no separate smoke gimmick. Georges Proust should still have it, although I think I got mine from Stevens.
