Two cards are selected and replaced in a deck, which is then placed in a goblet that is isolated atop a wooden base and covered with a glass dome. All is covered with a borrowed handkerchief as the magician explains that the cards will rise horizontally through the deck to the face of the pack. The handkerchief is removed and the first card is seen at the face of the deck. The cover is removed and the card is examined. To make things more difficult, the performer now encircles the deck of cards with a rubber band. It is returned to the glass and covered. Yet when the handkerchief is removed, the second card is seen to have traveled to the face of the pack. A wonderful mystery. Finely made. Early version of the apparatus. Condition: Excellent.
