This is a really beautiful version of Silkola from a new manufacturer Darren Heppel and his company DS Magik. Darren has been interested in magic for many years but has only recently started building his own props. Though based on his first two items he has released you could never tell. His finish out and eye for detail will give even the modern-day prop master Michael Baker a run for his money 🙂
This is Darren’s take on the Silkola effect invented by Lennart Bondesson of Sweden c. 1966 and sold to Supreme Magic Co. of England when it was first marketed c. 1967. It is very similar to Michael Baker’s version, they even use the same ornate bottle. Michael’s graphics and finish still have an edge but it is close.
I have spoken to Darren about the similarities between the two versions and have been convinced that these two versions are 100% coincidental. Darren had not even seen Michael’s work before he created his version. And I look forward to seeing more unique creations from this new builder.
- Ornate Silkola unit
- Two 12″ silks
- Vernet Crystal Thief to vanish the Silk (Bonus).
Effect: This is a reimagined version of silkola. The Magician displays a beautifully decorated tall box and an ornate empty glass bottle. The box is used to cover the bottle, and then, a blue silk is shown. The magician vanishes the silk in any manner they choose, and then the box is removed to reveal the silk has materialized inside the once empty bottle.
This trick is easy to perform, and the beginner can master it in a short amount of time. It does require a little practice to get a smooth transition. This is a beautiful piece of magic apparatus here. I make all these pieces myself. price includes shipping anywhere in the USA. outside the US, please inquire about additional shipping.
