Jim Riser Morrison Pillbox: solid maple scarce

Winning Bid: $836.00

Jim told me himself he is not making anymore of these  He is of course one of the finest craftsman of today and his products are highly sought after.

This is the most difficult of all wooden effects to turn.  This  is 8 inches tall made of maple and signed on the bottom by Riser in 2000, It comes with additional accessories including a red ball for a color change and an elliptical shaped “Ball” which I am ashamed to admit i have no idea what it is used for. It was special ordered as part of this effect by the original owner.

There is some damage to the shell ball which I have photographed in detail. There is a small chip out of the rim which has been nicely repaired and is absolutely stable. No issue with performing the effect.  There is also some small scratches on the bottom of the shell where the previous owner was not as careful as he should have been with this delicate piece of equipment when setting the lower half of the shell over the pin in the bottom of the base.

. Even with those faults is a wonderful piece of equipment to perform or display.  One of Jim’s unusual ideas which helps in the performance of the effect is the small invisible leather pads placed in the top of the vase to hold the top of the shell properly and delicately.

This is a scarce piece of wonderfully turned apparatus by a maser turner who is no longer making them.  Comes with an email fro Jim to the previous owner.

Estimate $700-1000
