Rare! Wellington Ent BENDING GLASS/ Like New!

Postby Rudy S. » September 16th, 2023, 6:09 pm

$950 includes shipping in the USA.



No longer available and very difficult to find used and this prop I’m selling is LIKE NEW!

Includes new knitted bag, knitting needle, smoked glass, beautiful frame and instructions as issued by Wellington Ent.

The original version of this effect known as Bending Glass (or Flexible Glass) was invented by British Magician Oswald Rae c. 1945, and was released by Max Andrews. A later improvement replaced the glass with a mirror which is what Wellington Enterprises are showing here. But they did not stop there.

This improved version of the Flexible Glass effect was initially designed for Doug Henning who made it a feature in his fifth TV Special in 1979. Doug came up with the idea of replacing the usual paper with a knitted bag to cover the frame. Wellington also improved the design of the mirror by employing a deceptive design for the frame. Though several have copied this idea, many have not fully understood the logic behind Wellington’s design.

Doug Henning had Wellington Ent build this and consequently allowed Wellington to market and sell it!

Chip Romero has Doug Henning's original prop, and it still works well (he performed it at FISM). Bill Schmeelk and Wellington Enterprises make exquisite props.
