I realize I am about 15 years late with this but I am trying to find out some information about a prop I recently bought.
It has a decal that reads, "Manufactured by Dave Emerson" and has his contact information printed on it. By the way, his address was Houston Lake, MO on the decal.
My prop was called "Dave Emerson Production Boxes" by the seller. it is actually a set of 2 boxes that nest and sit neatly on a little stand. The larger, red box is about a 5 1/2" cube and the smaller, yellow box is about a 5" cube. I am totally impressed with the quality and workmanship of this apparatus. It is really well-made, but there is some slight damage that I must repair. Before I begin the repairs I am hoping to find out more about the handling if I can.
I am pretty sure I know how the prop is meant to be presented, but the handling is a little risky for exposure and possible damage. I hope I am overlooking something and someone can help me figure out a safer way to handle the prop that is not as difficult or risky.
I have some ideas on how I hope to present this prop. In fact, I am already working on a routine, but I'd like to learn more before I finalize anything. I want to get started on making repairs asap but if I cannot figure out an easier/safer handling I may do some things a little different.
I will post a photo in hopes someone recognizes or has this prop and maybe knows something about it. I would gladly pay for a copy of the instructions should anyone have them. If you have any info whatsoever I would love to hear from you. I'd like to hear presentation and/or handling tips, when the prop was made, or any other information you may have.
Thank you so much!
