This is a pre-owned item.
This is a new device invaluable to any magician working with handkerchiefs. The marvelous possibilities and the extreme ease of handling appeal to everyone. You will receive illustrated instructions for the following effects:
#1 THE COMEDY COIN TRICK
Performer borrows a gentleman’s handkerchief, also a coin. The coin is placed in the center of the handkerchief and twisted up in the hand. The handkerchief, with the form of the coin in sight is held securely in the left fist. Spectator is asked to hold the coin through the handkerchief. Performer asks spectator: ” Do you think it possible for me to have the coin leave the handkerchief and pass into your hand without my letting go of the handkerchief? It looks impossible but wait until you see my magic shears.” Here the performer exhibits a pair of shears and deliberately cuts the center from the borrowed handkerchief, leaving the coin in the spectator’s hand. Need we tell you of the wonderful comedy produced?
The performer now offers to repair the mutilated handkerchief and explains that heat is necessary. He proceeds to warm the edges of the severed cloth with a lighted match and in doing so the handkerchief’s owner gets a shock as the heat is too intense and the handkerchief bursts into flames. It looks like goodbye handkerchief! The performer asks the spectator for the small piece of the handkerchief which has been cut off and claps it on to the flame, extinguishing it. The handkerchief is opened out and Is found to be fully restored. Both the handkerchief and the hands are shown front and back, and the handkerchief is tossed to the owner. Not just an idea, but a clean cut trick you will use.
#2 THE SILK PRODUCTION.
Performer rolls his sleeves up, then closing the left fist, he pretends to take a pinch of air in his right fingers and drops it into the closed fist, first allowing the “air” to warm up a bit. He then shows the right hand empty and reaches into the fist and produces a beautiful silk handkerchief. As the silk is withdrawn the left hand is also shown to be empty. Ireland’s New Gimmick has special mechanical features to make this effect possible.
#3 OH, WAITER, CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT!
This dinner table effect positively creates a sensation. The performer gathers up a handful of the tablecloth, or napkin, and sets fire to it. The smoke and sparks fly up. Just as the waiter rushes for the fire extinguisher, the performer calmly passes his hand over the flames, which immediately disappear and the table cloth is seen to be fully restored and not harmed in the least.
#4 A COLOR CHANGE
A silk handkerchief is shown and the hands are otherwise seen to be empty. The silk is pushed down through the left fist and as it emerges from the bottom of the fist, it has changed to an entirely different color and is given out for examination.
Anyone of the above effects is well worth the price asked for the New Handkerchief Gimmick. You will be delighted with the special feature of this new gimmick, which makes it so easy to handle.
Excellent pre-owned condition.
