This one is difficult to find.  Look at its original price of of $175!  You could have bought a Victrola record player for that instead of just the motor!  This is the grand daddy of all snake baskets.  It was completely refurbished with all original parts in 2009 by Paul Lembo and you get the video from him showing how to set it up.  Also the original instructions and some hand drawn instructions from another owner,.

Similar to other snake baskets the snake rises with the chosen card.  Lets face it this is a collectible but what a great collectible. Although it does work you would not want to take this around to shows.  Use the Kyber Cobra for that or Terry Lunceford’s or Chance Wolf’s (available on this site).  But if you want history and something that will impress your fellow collecting buddies this is it.  It is magnificent!

The center piece of any collection!

The table is 35 inches tall or 43 inches to the top of the basket.Non mechanical snake has the rattler gimmick in the tail.  Great condition.
