To Perform

Bring box forward and show all sides. Place in upright position on a plain undraped table. Tip box over with lid to front. Open up lid showing inside of the box, Fig. 33. Close lid again and tip box back to normal position. Raise lid, reach into compartment and make production.

If desired, you can add patter to the trick and tell a fanciful pirate story. When the pirate's chest was dug up, it was found empty. However, a magician discovered its secrets and brought forth the missing treasures.

Fig. 35 is a picture of compartment. Note the thin tin side pieces to keep compartment from swinging back too far.

Fig. 36 shows the box with the compartment inside. You will note that the bottom of box is formed by one side of compartment and that the other side leans up against the front side of box. The bottom side of compartment is hinged to bottom of front side of box.

You could produce jewels, strings of imitation pearls, jeweled crowns, bags of money or handfuls of imitation gold.

You will find the "Treasure Chest" illusion very effective. Professionals value it highly.
