Certified by SME curator Bill Trotter. Original Collectors’ Workshop product manufactured during Rich Bloch and Nick Ruggerio’s Tenure at Collectors’ Workshop. This item was later marketed by George Robinson who too over Collectors’ workshop. But early piece from the original line have a distinct collectability advantage and as such, should be distinguished. Highly likely original box is also included which proves the fabrication was early CW.
Absolute favorite of closeup, table, club and stage workers. A borrowed ring is deposited in a solid brass “ring cleaner.” The handle is cranked, with an awful, crunching sound. Dismayed, the performer stops and empties the “cleaner.” Gold dust pours out. Unperturbed, the performer offers to trade his “most valuable possession” — a deck of cards that has been sitting on the table at all times. Inside the case is the borrowed ring.
Circa: 1987 – Good Condition with instructions.
