THAT Infernal Contraption!!!!

Welcome to That Infernal Contraption.  Magician have been using Square Circles for Generations in their act.  They are cumbersome.  They're often ugly to the point of gaudiness. They produce silk hankerchiefs, or flowers or something equally  discordant with the image of a male performer.  Welcome to somethign that ain't your grandfathers Square Circle!!

An ornate Victorian-Steampunk inspired example of wood cabinetry, with gizmos and gadgets and thingamajigs and knobs and switches ...that allow for intergalactic time-space- travel... and huge entertainment value.
Jules Vern, H. G. Wells, Charles Dickens, and Edgar Alan Poe would have loved this prop! The Outer-Cabinet opens to reveal an Inner-Chamber, both rest on a revolving art nouveau inspired base.
The conjurer weaves strange tales of half-mad inventors and secret laboratories where ramshackle machines create a vortex making teleportation possible. He reveals the cabinets “present” (outer chest) and “past” (inner chest) and how space-and-time can be manipulated and warped at the magician’s will.
Imagine being able to produce Jack The Ripper's bloody gloves, Edison's first light bulb, John Wilkes Booth's diary, Queen Victoria’s wedding veil!!!
Not only is this a beautiful and collectible artifact, it is a practical and logically themed variation of the classic Square-Circle, with numerous innovations in design and function, allowing for a considerable load capacity, but the ability to dismantle and pack almost flat. No one will ever guess that this contraption is based on a classic method.
The painstakingly fabricated components are very deceptive and the entire unit plays huge, but packs into a small aluminum case for transport and storage!
Each individually constructed and hand-finished piece will be:
Each unit hand-numbered by Wack-O Innovative
Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity
Performance Rights for story and presentation
A full Story-Presentation by respected bizarrist Walt Anthony Collectable Unit Limited Edition, with individually ornamented components A protective aluminum transportation case 

I have only made 15 of these.. and 4 were immediately taken!!  that means that only 11 can go to magicians world wide!!   The case, as shipped, weighs 18 lbs!  This is a GIANT prop that pack FLAT as can be into it's own suitcase!!!

The final dimensions when it's assembled  14 x 14  x 22!!   

The price is also nice for what it is.. $595 plus shipping... shipping a 22 lb box isn't cheap... shipping for this is about $40...  but it's so totally worth it!!!
