Another Magical Mental Mystery.... With permission from Owens Magic Supreme. Made specially for us by Louie Gaynor. With special thanks to Alan Zagorsky.
Sweet and simple... Three different colored balls are shown. A spectator is asked to place one of them into the small ballot box which the performer holds behind his back. Then the spectator is asked to concentrate on the color of their choice (after concealing the other two balls). Both the box and balls may be examined, yet the performer is always able to call the color of any ball placed into the Ballot Box.
Masterfully recreated for those with a love for apparatus and an affinity for Thayer. Images this beautiful piece, (a Thayer/Owens original concept), resting on your shelf at home. This piece has been painstakingly recreated by Louie Gaynor under the authorization and permission from Owens Magic Supreme. Each piece requires no less then "15" hours of hand work, for the box and the hand-turned balls.
You will NOT be disappointed with this ingenious method and the quality made for us by Louie. This can be performed blindfolded, It is also self-working and instantly repeatable.
History: The Ballot Box obtains its name from the ancient form of voting in lodges. If a new member was to be voted upon, each voting member had the right to put in a colored ball OR if the new member was not desirable to him, he would put in a black ball! Thus, where the saying; "He was black balled" came to be.
Enjoy, as you have a very nice piece of rare magic that saw it's first days back in the 1930's, and yet still amazes today!
