This came from an old magician’s estate purchase. Coms with the original instructions. The fan of cards and the one that rises are lightly toned from age but everything works perfectly. This is a really cute and vintage effect created by Henry Durkin from New York city and was distributed by well known magician Don Lawton.
Effect: A card is selected and returned to the deck. A few shuffles and the deck is placed aside. Attention is now called to the lapel pin that the magician is wearing. It is a fan of four miniature cards. The spectator is asked if they see the card that they chose among the four in the fan.
The magician is shocked at the negative reply and tells the spectator that they must be nearsighted and they should look again. When they do, a miniature replica of the chosen card RISES FROM THE FAN OF FOUR! The magician’s hands never touch the lapel pin in any manner.
