A large and very attractive chest, – this could be the chest from a story in the Arabian Nights, or of a mythical Pirate.
Tip it over with lid open to show it empty, then produce a large variety of “treasures” from the empty chest.
Show it empty again, then produce some more. – yards of silks from the east, or doubloons and rubies, or gold bricks! Or even a puppy or kitten.
A very attractive prop, and excellent value for money.
