This is an old trick, but the following description is copyright 1967 by the Inzani-Henley Magic Company Limited, London. A wooden ball vanishes from the performer’s pocket and appears inside a wooden vase. Now the procedure is reversed, but the ball refuses to vanish from the vase, so after a couple of unsuccessful attempts, the performer hits the ball with a wooden hammer and the ball vanishes instantly only to reappear back in the performer’s pocket.

The box enables the magician to vanish and produce a marble at will. The base is stamped ‘Germany’ and the sample number 310 is also pencilled on the base.

The magician takes a red ball from the vase and replaces the lid. The magician then vanishes the ball, which is found back in the vase.
