The Chest of Enchantment illusion is a great effect that was created by the late Percy Abbott for the Howard Thurston show. The magician displays a large chest or trunk that sits on a small table. The magician opens the lid and folds down the front of the trunk to show the trunk's empty interior. The front door and lid are closed, the illusion is spun around, and when reopened, the magician's beautiful assistant appears! This improved model of this great effect does away with the angle problems of the original design. The prop can be used to vanish a person or change one person into another. This makes this illusion extremely practical for the modern working performer. No tip-over method or mirrors are used. Highly recommended.
