Haunted Bottle. An undervalued overlooked mystery that should be in every performer's close-up case.
A small wooden bottle sealed with a stopper is removed from a cloth pouch. The Magus relates the manner in which he came by this unusual artifact and the secret it contains.
"The bottle actually contains the spirit of a Genie; a wizard from long ago. This tattered parchment tells the tale and the secret to controlling the Genie within this little bottle. It helps us translate the weird and mysterious glyphs on the base of the bottle."
This is a great routine full of mystery and Magick. The bottle can be made to lay down or remain upright. The performer is in complete control (as long as the Genie remains happy).
This is not your standard Imp in the Bottle effect. A completely unique principle is used here and the spectators will not be able to discover the secret.
The bottle can be made to slowly tip over on your palm and suddenly stand upright. If the spectator tries to duplicate your feat, he will be unsuccessful.
Remember, no little iron rod to secretly remove. No magnets, wires or invisible thread.
The routine and ancient parchment that is included makes this a wonderful story-telling effect.
Bottle and stopper are hand-turned of select hardwood, then hand polished and rubbed to achieve the beautiful luster of a precious artifact. Another quality item from Viking Mfg. Co.
Size: approx. 3 1/8" tall x 2 3/4" wide at the base.
