I have a set from Abbots but was wondering what other companies make these. What company did Neil Foster go thru and are they still around today? Anyone know?

This was Neil Foster's idea and he marketed through Abbott's Magic in Colon, Michigan. During his time there he was editor of the Tops Magazine as well. He originally used the dual flower production and then changed to a single. If memory serves me correctly, he used 50 spring flowers.

To my knowledge no one else has the right to make or sell the spring flower finale.

Neil also worked for Magic Inc. out of Chicago, Ill, but only marketed a box table he used in his school shows and a 3 golf ball balancing on the end of want trick.

Neil used Horace Marshall spring flowers. That is all he ever used by his own words. They had multiple color in each bloom. Neil also added some ribbons to his bunches. I used to make spring flowers but just too much work for too little money. Plus the exact paper that was used is no longer made so I could not exactly duplicate the flowers though I came very close.

I think Wm is correct on the fifty flowers.
