Magno’s Imp Bottle novelty

The imp bottle is a simple but ingenious ‘catch’. You show someone that the bottle can easily be placed flat on the table so that it lays on its side. However, when you give it to someone to try, they find this is impossible to achieve – it immediately flips up into a standing position on its base. This particular example of the bottle comes with its original envelope and instructions.
