Item Details
Description
[HOFZINSER] HOFZINSER ANY-CARD CALLED FOR CARD RISING BOX. New York: Charles Kalish, ca. 1976. Leather-covered brass case tooled in gilt into which the magician places a pack of piquet cards. A spectator is asked to name any card in the pack, and then, on command, the called for card rises from the slot in the top of the box. The case conceals a mechanically complex clockwork device that allows for the working of the effect. One of two manufactured by Kalish. See Salon de Magie, page 130. Modeled on the original apparatus owned and used by Hofzinser and now in the Library of Congress, this box is one of two manufactured – with the consent of the Library – by Charles Kalish, who used the original apparatus as his direct model, borrowing it and disassembling (and then reassembling) it for expressly that purpose.
