This came from Richard Resor’s auction held in 1981 in Lima Ohio. I have never seen it before. I do not know if it is a prototype, a marketed effect or something he made for himself. I do know it is his original decals and his work.
The effect is a bowl full of water and gold fish is placed inside a small chest. The chest is carried forward and suddenly the chest falls apart and the bowl and fish have vanished. The chest is spun to show both sides and the bowl is simply gone. It is a very nice effect in good but used condition. I believe it to be quite rare if not unique. The box is 8 inches square.
