Product Description

A pretty cool illusionists blade box…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we understand from the previous owner that it could date to circa 1980s. This came from a well know props department and would have been used by a magician or illusionist to perform a trademark trick using the blades housed within the box…

The box has been hand made and hand painted in wood, and carefully crafted to house the numerous blades and sticks. It’s quite a naive build, yet everything fits where it should do. The box has retained a good structure and shape, with just some surface scars and scuffs throughout the piece, which only adds to its authenticity…

The sides are in sections, therefore can all be removed to reveal the insides (assuming where the individual or object would hide and or disappear as part of the illusion)…

Please note : The blades are not sharp and we think are made in a sheet metal or something similar

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The blade box although structurally great has some surface scars and scratches, with a little paint loss and a general weathered look and feel. It is only wheels, enabling the box to be moved with eased too. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
