The magician introduces a box wrapped up in paper and shows that it contains six different coloured ties. Separately, the magician shows a stiff collar. A spectator selects a coloured tie by choosing one of six cards. When the collar is displayed again, the selected colour is seen to be tied around it. Complete with instructions, although the apparatus does not fully match the description. It is likely that this item has survived in the collection because it was a faulty model which could not therefore be sold.
