Old Silk Changer and pull

Postby magicchair00 » February 14th, 2011, 9:39 pm

Not sure on the maker, this has to open holes, one you load a silk onto a bar and wind up into the gimmick, the 2nd hole has a hook on it so the silk it placed onto the hook and when the other silk inside the gimmick is pulled out, it winds up the silk on the hook up into the gimmick by its self. Madw to be placed on a pull to vanish at the end. Very old. $55.00 plush shipping.

Could be German. There is a similar gimmick, but it's a red billiard ball and the silk is rapidly sucked inside it the same way.

As I remember, this gimmick does not have a spring in it. It is similar to the Norm Nielsen and the Mikame gimmick. This gimmick is probably where they got the idea from. As you pull the pre-set silk from the chamber, the silk the audience first saw is pulled simultaneously and perfectly into the other chamger. The gimmick also has a loop at the end, for a pull, so when the hanky has changes colors, up the sleeve or under the coat the gimmick goes. I would date it around 1920's. Take a look at the rim work around the chamber openings. Quality work. Garry Hayes

I had one of these and another more open one. It is NOT related to the ball or egg with a spring that sucks the silk in. This is manually operated when you pull on one it rolls up the other, giving you a through the hands Color change.
Stay tooned.
