Vintage Drumhead 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.  All pieces will need to be refinished. 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.  You’ll need to install the wick.

It appears that with this outfit the top of the candle is stolen off in the act of creating the tissue paper drumheads. Then a silk handkerchief is caused to vanish and when one of the paper drumheads is  broken the silk is found inside and removed. Then the other paper drumhead is opened up and the audience is allowed to look completely through the empty tube from both ends proving that the candle has completely vanished!

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.
