Help me find the origin of this prop.

Postby HardlyHardy » February 8th, 2015, 12:18 pm

Hey guys. I've recently come into possession of a rather interesting vanishing box. I've searched it diligently, but there are no manufacturing marks of any kind on the box.
It's a very sturdy prop and works very well. Does anyone have an idea of where this box came from?

It appears to be part of "Asian" line of magic that Fantasma magic made about 6 to 10 years ago. I think.

Richard is absolutely correct - I have one from Fantasma.

I actually found their Asian card box and it looks almost exactly the same. I suspect this is either an older version of the prop they currently market or their vanishing box is a replica of mine

Thanks for all the help. I found the exact copy of the prop. They've since changed the design but it's still available.

I've got a very unusual card box routine. If anyone's interested, send me an email Trickmail@cogeco.ca

My routine is called, "I Am Carticus!!!"

You'll need to do a bit of work on the Fantasma card box, but it's easy.
