A broken or mutilated parasol transforms visibly into a normal parasol when placed in a crystal clear tube. The skeleton of the parasol is placed in the clear tube, and the cover in a bag. In an instant the cover has vanished from the bag, and is back on the parasol in the tube.
The props you get in this outfit comprise of a Conradi Utility Tube 10″ in height and 2.25″ in dia made from acrylic and two novel parasols or umbrellas, (one normal, one “mutilated”). In addition to this you will require a change bag, already in most magician’s “Bag of Tricks”. If you do not have one, we can supply one of several models.
The Conradi Tube is an utility prop more than a hundred years old, with more potential than most magicians realize.
The Tube we supply is made from Acrylic, far more durable than glass, with Acrylic mirrors. It is a very handy size, for use with large silks, or other items, clearly visible on a stage.
You can also use the tube to visibly transform Silks to a Blendo or a Flag, make silks multiply, perform an “Acrobatic Silk” or Sponge Ball routine (like the Monkey Bar), and much more in addition to the Mutilated Parasol props supplied.
