Here is a nice set of five nesting boxes. These are all very nicely decorated. They are very well made and I believe that they are made for the general market as opposed to specifically crafted for the magic market. They do however work for magical purposes very well.
A great way to reproduce a marked coin or a borrowed ring (or even a flat watch. It is one of the strongest tricks in parlor or stage magic!
The borrowed item reappears in the innermost of 5 nesting boxes even so all the boxes are individually wrapped with rubber bands.
When the biggest box is opened, inside it a smaller box is found, etc. Each of the smaller size boxes is strapped with rubber bands, which need to be removed before the box can be opened. All this is done by the spectator until, in the last box, he finds the vanished item.
Remember: All the boxes can be handled and examined as long as the spectator wishes. There are no traps or secret compartments anywhere!
The largest box is approx. 9.75 x 6.75 x 2.75″, the smallest box measures approx. 4.5 x 2.75 x 1.5″.
A slide for use with a large coin is included, however the beauty of the set is the fact that it can be operated without a slide, allowing even bigger items to fit (example a signet ring etc.).
You will need to provide the rubber bands to make the boxes appear locked.
This is an easy to do, “no assistant needed” method of the Nest of Boxes.
I will include a short English write-up that illustrates the set-up and performance.
