Winning Bid: $375.00


In 1936 legendary British Inventor, Craftsman, and Dealer, Jack Hughes, invented what became known as the Television or TV Card Frame (or sometimes Television Glass Frame) where a chosen card appears trapped between two plates of glass set in a houlette.

This version from El Duco is very compact and reliable via sound activation.  Traditionally  this was activated by a silk or card pistol.  However, these days you would be better off simply clapping your hands and making it vanish from a card box such as the beautiful Perfection Card Box as seen in the video from National Magic Company.


Effect:  On the table is a neat stand with two crystal clear Plexi glass plates. Take the unprepared plates, held together by rubber bands and after showing them to the audience replace them on the stand.

Now, let a spectator choose a card, then tear off a piece and give it to the spectator to hold for verification. Place the card in the card box close the lid and place it in front of the stand or hand it to the spectator.

Build up the suspense and then clap your hands.  The card with the torn corner suddenly appears between the sheets. Ask the spectator to open up the card box – the card has disappeared and hand them the sheets.  They can remove the card and check that the corner matches.

And the crowd goes wild 🙂

A masterpiece of magic apparatus, built in metal and Plexi glass. Built to top mechanical and electronic standards by a master-craftsman.
