Vintage Cap Style Vanishing Candle to Silk


1 in stock


We picked this up from an old magician’s estate. It does not have any instructions and we do not know the maker.  It’s a beautiful outfit and is constructed from good quality metal materials. Nothing plastic. The candle tip has a reservoir with cotton inside for placing lighter fluid so you can actually light the candle prior to performing the effect.  The candle has some paint loss and will need to be touched up. The chrome finish on the tube is still fairly good but has some light scratches where the caps go on. The caps have some paint loss.

Effect: A candle is lit to show it’s real and then the flame is extinguished. It is placed inside a chrome tube and capped with two painted metal covers. Next a silk handkerchief is shown and caused to vanish. One of the caps is removed from the chrome tube and the vanished silk is removed. The other cap is removed from the tube and the audience allowed to look completely through it proving the candle has vanished!

It appears that with this outfit the top of the candle is stolen off in the act of removing the silk from the tube as there is a provision for attaching the silk to it.

If you are handy and take the time to refinish this outfit it will be something you’ll be proud to own and use in your act.

No silks supplied.

What you see pictured is what you receive. The rubber plug in the picture was included with the outfit as we received it. We can see no use for it but it will be included in case you may know what it’s for.
