Got one in an estate a while back and can't figure out the maker. High quality, hidden hinges and all. Instructions are pretty generic with no name of them. Who knows more about these than I do (EVERYBODY) these days? I can't find a mark, but there does seem to be a stamp of "PMA" inside the hidden hinge area. Instructions are titled "Miracle Mirror", if that helps.

I'm thinking it's Owen, but the only Owen price list I have is old. What's a current price of a new one?

Here's on for $20 but it looks awful, https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic/......r-magic/ If you have the all wooden one with real knitting needles, I would think a fair price would be around, $75.
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a foolish man can learn from a wise answer.

Attributing negativity to a topic or post doesn't make the topic or post negative,
it shines a light on the negativity of the person or persons, making the attributions.

BEWARE these Debbie downers and anything they say. They simply lack the self esteem or good will, to be positive or productive. Your belief in self, is more
important and is all that matters, for your success to be glorious.

With the proper patter, it sells to adults.

I always thought Doug Henning's presentation was excellent.

Is the best version of this effect made by Mikame or is there a better alternative?

Owens Magic prints their instructions on their letterhead paper.

Steve Thomas, can you actually describe the prop you are asking for help with, or post a picture. You did not describe the frame at all. Some are natural wood, and exotic wood. Some are laminated wood. Some are painted black, blue, red. Some have metallic stickers on them.

Tannen's was the only seller of this effect, until Doug Henning presented it on national television. No other magic dealer or manufacturer made or sold any other model up until the television airing.

Unfortunately, I never seen what Tannen's was selling, but if your instructions were just mimeographed sheet, the it is most likely from Tannen's.
