Robert Houdin – Mystery Music Box Collection (Click the product name to learn more!)

COMPLETE SET OF FIVE…For the first time ever, Stevens Magic is proud to offer you exclusively, a set of five music boxes playing the music performed by Robert-Houdin’s magic “Soirees” in the mid-19th Century. These original tunes have been transposed into crystal-clear mechanical music. The “Quadrilles Fantastiques” were piano themes performed during Robert-Houdin’s magic show. Each of the five boxes plays a different piano theme used by Robert-Houdin himself! Collectors and magicians alike will be enthralled by this timeless, elegant and mystical collection. Each complete collection comes with a crystal case, poster and documentation. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to get what is sure to be a collector’s item. Thanks to our friend, Georges Proust (Academe de Magie), Jean-Luc Muller and Philippe Sayous PLEASE NOTE: The music boxes are constructed in Paris, hand assembled by some of the finest crafters in the art of music boxes, clockwork and automata. Because of this, the manufacturer is unable to meet large demands. Nonetheless, the maker wants this line to be accessible to the magic community in such a manner that it can be achieved financially, but still be worthy of the memory of a great magician. The music featured on these timeless boxes includes the following: 1. Antonia Diavolo-considered as Robert-Houdin’s mechanical masterpiece. 2. The “Pastry-Cook of the Palais-Royal”. 3. The “Magic Portfolio” or “Carton Fantasique” 4. La Suspension – Eugene 5. L’Oranger

Pre-CHEST-Ination (Click the product name to learn more!)

"The most ingenious prediction chest effect ever created. Magician never touches the chest and this does not work like other traditional prediction chests! I have over 20 different chests in my own collection and this one is completely different!"

Numerologie (Click the product name to learn more!)

The latest mental effect from the creative mind of Charles Gauci! Imagine…A performer hands two spectator’s a Numerological numbered chart, and a numbered scratch card. He asks each person to “mentally” select a number from the Numerological chart and then to scratch that same number on the corresponding scratch card. Upon doing so, the name of a city is revealed. Keep in mind, neither the audience nor the magician is aware of the number they choose or the city that was revealed when the spectator scratched the ticket! The spectators mentally concentrate on their individual city, and the performer “immediately” reveals the city that both were thinking of! There is no force of the numbers. They only think of the city’s name. No pumping. No questions are asked. Perform immediately after reading the instructions. Can be repeated each time with a different outcome. Terrific for close-up or stage. Wonderful impromptu effect. Each packet contains 48 scratch cards. Refills available.
