Amaze them like Houdini did!

Everyone loves hearing stories about Houdini! This is the fascinating "Chinese Goblet" illusion with a Houdini theme!

Fill a glass goblet with some liquid. Wrap the chain around the stem of the cut-glass goblet and place the shackled goblet into the solid wood cabinet. The goblet is secured inside the case and the door is secured, with the ends of the chain sticking out through a small hole in the cabinet door and padlocked together. There is no way to pull the chain out of the cabinet- it is looped around the glass inside. After telling the tale of Houdini's talent for escaping any chains, you suddenly pull the ends of the chain- and the chain passes right through the stem of the glass and comes free! You open the cabinet, and there is the goblet, still in one piece, completely unharmed and still filled with liquid. You can now take the glass out of the cabinet and make a toast to Houdini!

And this is an absolutely gorgeous piece of magical apparatus! Made of solid wood and featuring an interesting design, this is a prop that will give you years of trouble free enjoyment- and will also look great displayed in your magic library.

This beautiful cabinet is a big 9.5 inches tall, and 4.75 inches wide on each side.

Performance Ideas   Performance Ideas:

You could actually make a REAL toast to Houdini. Before putting the goblet into the cabinet, fill it with some wine or colored liquid. The chain escape will be even more spectacular when the audience can see that you never spill a drop- the cabinet door is opened at the end, you take out the still full goblet, and make a Toast To Houdini.

Since the goblet is not gimmicked in any way, you can use any stemmed goblet that will fit inside the cabinet. For example, you could use a goblet with a company's logo, or you could use an embossed goblet from a wedding or special event.


What you'll get when you buy this trick   Here's what you'll get:

  • Toast To Houdini cabinet
  • stemmed glass goblet
  • chain
  • padlock and keys
  • printed instructions
And that's all you need!

A nicely shaped goblet comes with this cabinet. You can, however, use any goblet that will fit inside the cabinet.
History of this magic effect   History and Trivia:

In his lifetime, Houdini performed some variation of the Chain Escape over 5,000 times.
