Most of you likely know who John Daniel was. He was a performer of magic traveling with a full stage show in the 60’s. He owned Thayer magic at one time. He was the consummate collector of many things not just magic. He was married to one of the most beautiful women in the world Kathy (whose beauty is only overshadowed by her wonderful personality). John was also one of the best builders in the United States. He built the first thin sawing built specifically for his wife at the time Irene (Larsen).
John built a few of the miniature talking prayer vase to the exact specifications of it’s older brother the Thayer talking vase only about 1/2 scale. This was hand turned and beautifully finished as Thayer did, with a heavy gold “crinkle” finish exactly duplicating the Thayer.. They are prized collectibles.
The effect is the same as the prayer vase. A rope is inserted into the neck of the bottle and with a little magic the bottle suspends itself on the rope until the magician commands it to release. In mint condition and comes with its own protective bag. The vase is approximately 9 inches tall.
John sold these for $250. No more will ever be made.
