Vintage effect: Old China by Arthur Settington UK: scarce

Winning Bid: $90.00

Vintage effect from the UK.  The audience shows four figures and they get to decide who is going to guard the famous scroll.  The color of the figure is chosen and they are all interlaced with a ribbon (ungimmicked you supply) and placed into the temple. WHen they are all removed the chosen figure is missing from the entwined four.  The door is put back on and the figure then appears with the scroll safely guarding it.  This is a combination of Massey’s Fantastique trick and Hearsum’s switch frame.  Looks great on the shelf with that classic 1950’s look.

The top arch of the temple has had some repair work as shown in the photograph.  It is totally stable.  The temple is 14.5×7 inches.

Estimate $100-150
