A collectible vintage miniature grand Illusion. Item has been fairly used during cabaret shows, not by myself but by the magician who previously owned this unique piece of equipment. It is in very good condition. Excellent manufacturing quality. No instructions included but as soon as you see the gimmick (not shown in photos) it will be easy for an expert dove handler to comprehend and use.
UNIQUE – Dove Suspension on Daggers
An effect ideal for parlour (platform magic), video or stage work.
The magician displays two heavily chromed daggers with sharp looking tips, and inserts them upright into an elegant wooden base. The magician then takes a dove (dove could be produced during a previous routine) and appears to hypnotize it. The dove is gently placed resting on the tips of the daggers. After a couple of magical gestures and intense focus, the magician proceeds to remove one of the daggers leaving the dove to balance on the tip of the remaining dagger.
A small hoop may be used to show that the dove is not supported by any other means except for that one dagger. The previously removed dagger is replaced, the dove brought back to consciousness and the magician shows it to be completely unharmed.
Dove Suspension on Daggers Includes: 2 x Highly Chromed Daggers 9inchs in length, wooden base and gimmick to make the effect possible without any possibility of harming any animal. No instructions.
No brand and no instructions. We have tried looking for something similar but could not find anything and are led to believe that this may be a one off customised item. For sure it makes up for some great parlour magic (platform magic) or a fantastic mini stage illusion.
