Invented by Ed Massey and then manufactured by Milson-Worth in the early 1950's, the Flame Clock is a fairly rare piece of vintage magic.
Let me show you this Chinese Flame Clock from my collection...

I've heard of the Chinese Flame Clock but have never seen one or seen a performance of the effect being done. Awesome presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Great old prop. I like seeing these vintage props demonstrated. This should be a weekly feature. Keep up the good work!

Hi Peter. Loved the Chinese clock. Now I want to build one. Do you have any books on the shelf for building your own magic. I have built a few prices in the past. One to make an elephant disappear and another one that is the mirror box. Waiting for my magic to arrive. I am sure it will be here soon. Thanks Tom

I agree Milson-Worth made beautiful stuff! I have several of their pieces, including a Flame Clock that looks just like yours. If you bought it for $47.50, that was a steal. My 1990 Milson-Worth price list shows it for $300! I wanted one from the first time I saw it in their catalog, but never could justify the cost. By the time I could afford one, the company was out of business. I eventually found one in nearly mint condition on e-bay a few years ago for just slightly more than the original price. It's a lovely piece. I'd love to see more of your collection, especially older pieces that are not often seen these days. Thanks for sharing these items with us!
