Abbott’s Spectac Water Vanish: Rare 1950’s

Winning Bid: $430.00

Very beautiful and rare. This appeared in one catalog only, the small #14 which had a number of items in in that appeared in that catalog only.  It is the vanish of a very heavy all glass bowl  of water (yes the original bowl is here!). The Bowl is filled and placed into the chest and then the chest is entirely taken apart piece by piece with no bowl to be found!  There are no lids on the bowl of any kind and yes the actual real bowl full of water is placed into the chest.   This amazing piece of apparatus actually locks and seals the bowl into place for the vanish!  It is in very good condition and functions perfectly!  There is one small area of damage on the lid which I have photographed close up. This is one of the rarest items Abbot ever made.  The ad is from catalog 14. I have no instructions but you will not have any problem understanding the workings.  It is 14x14x5.5 inches.

Estimate $500-700
