A nice find in excellent used condition. No longer made at this time. A classic Abbotts item.
The greatest comedy trick in years! A really funny combination that is a sure laugh producer. A fancy metal tube with a removable lid is shown empty. A silk handkerchief is placed inside, the lid is placed on and the tube is given to a boy to hold. A small box is next shown empty. Its lid is replaced and it is given to a second boy to hold. The magician explains that the purpose of the trick is to pass the silk from the tube into the box held by the second assistant, on the other side of the stage. The magic words are pronounced and Wow! What a surprise!
When the boy removes the lid from the tube a five foot long spring snake springs out of the tube and high into the air. At the same time there are two loud bang noises. The silk has vanished! The boy with the box naturally joins in with the laughter of the audience. He then opens the box he has been holding. Bang! Bang! Two more loud noises followed by a production of flowers cascading from the box. More laughter and plenty of it. And is the second boy surprised! The boys are asked to help in picking up the flowers and there is a bigger howl than ever. On one boys back is a sign reading “Nuts”. On the other boys back is the missing silk! The apparatus is self-contained. There are no moves. No sleights. It is practical for club, parlor, floor show or stage. The presentation includes comedy business with a tray that is good for additional laughs. The apparatus is finished in lacquer. The box is blue, black and gold. The tube is chromed. Complete with snake, two silks, bingo shooting devices, flowers, gimmicks and instructions.
Note: We supply two original Bingo devices for reference and four of the newer models using toy gung caps (not supplied). The instructions have a quarter size hole in them but are nonetheless easy to understand.
