Note: Before you think you know how this is done by looking at the picture you might want to think again. The handling on this is very clever and without the included instructions and presentation you will have a hard time figuring out the way this is correctly performed. It’s a fooler!
Effect: The performer offers his finger ring to a spectator to examine. The spectator is instructed to thread the ring onto a cord and to hold both ends. (Two spectators may be used, one holding each end of the cord). The performer drapes a pocket handkerchief over the ring. Borrowing a finger ring from a spectator, the performer places it up under the handkerchief.
The person or persons holding the cord are cautioned not to let go of their ends. The performer slides his ring along the cord, from under the handkerchief and the spectator’s ring is seen to be linked onto the performer’s ring!
The rings are slid off the cord and the performer walks among the spectators, giving them a close look so that they can clearly see that the two rings are linked together.
The performer now places the linked rings under the handkerchief, and suddenly removes the spectator’s ring and returns it to its owner. For a surprising climax, he whips the handkerchief off the cord and on the cord is seen the magician’s ring!
Cord and ring may be carefully examined.
