Don't worry.

Of course, It will dent if it is hit very badly.
However, there is NO PROBLEM if you performing usual routine.
Our bottle is not so fragile as you are thinking.

I need more reviews except for the appearance of the bottles by the purchaser.

They are made like a tank (compare to others)! You will ONLY dent them if you mishandle them or dropped them!

Kh-magus,

I do a modified 12-bottle routine. Any plans on making a 12 bottle set - or will you make a custom 12-bottle set?

Thanks,
MK

WM: I would guess Hocus had to pay the $999 and shipping, hence the retail price of $1500.

Thank you for your kind review, RayLum!


Hello Michael,

The advantage of our bottle is reality.
If you leave the bottles of present three size on the table,
Nobody will doubt they are the fake.

I think that bigger bottle is likely to spoil it.
Only one huge bottle causes a doubt to other bottles.
There won't be a problem at long range.

I will try to design of the bigger bottle again.
However, the design of the shape of the neck is especially difficult.
This is the reason why I hesitated to make the twelve sets.


Hello Peto,

Your guess is almost right.
We are hoping to have real magicians like you evaluate our bottles!

Hello Keisuke,

Question - what type of tubes come with the bottle set? From the photo displayed on Hocus Pocus, they appear to be cardboard.

The bottles do look fantastic though.

Hello Rick,

The tubes come with the bottles are mere cardboard.
we tried metal tubes or plastic tubes.

But, we believe that cardboard is the best!
They are light weight, and never damage bottles.
Also you can use the tubes with caps for carrying bottles.

We wanted to paint tubes.
But, we given up not to increase a price any further.

You can find tubing at placaes like Home Depot and line with fabric that has adhesive back for solid tubes that won't damage the bottles.

The bottles coming with cardboard tubes was discussed earlier in the string. If you really want nice tubes, just find a shop that deals with plexiglas, they can cut tubes to size and glaze the endges if you want. Cover with contact paper or the many sparkle contact coverings on th market. Dave Cressey Products usually has a very nice contact sparkle sheets that do not reflect light, so this will make them look very sharp and classey.

Congradulations on your purchase!

That's as it should be stacks of 3, the perfect solution.

Greetings,
I have a vintage 9-bottle set of Multiplying Bottles put out by Metephso Magic - Amsterdam; at least this is what is on the labels, that I purchased some time ago and have been intending to re-sell when the time was right. I would like to investigate now so that I too can consider upgrading to a better set as posted in this blog. The set I currently use are from a suggestion I got from this wonderful Café' a while back in that I purchased two sets of the cheaper 8-bottle India sets and pulled the inner stack 4th bottle to get a cheap version to practice the Ken Brook Routine. Anyway, this gold set is well over 35 years in age and is made of a more quality heavier stock. Two of the three inner bottles has the ability to hold liquid. The silver tubes show light scuffs due to way in which prior magi stored when not in use. Please see attached pic if you can assist. Thanks in advance for any input.

As I recall, Mephisto's sets were quite nice. To upgrade? I would remove the labels and carefully spray them a color matching wine bottles, then get a set of Martini labels from http://www.nnmagic.com

Go for it.

Thanks Pete,
And thank you for the correction on the spelling of the Manufacturer – Mephisto Magic. I copied from an old e-mail of the magi I purchased from in past. So what you are telling me indirectly is that as they sit, they are not worth all that much. OK, I can just sit on them another 10-20 years and hope they are worth more in the future. I just see what is out there in way of quality and get too excited I guess. For me, the bug of upgrading constantly is an issue – it drives my wife crazy. Perhaps I will even start using this vintage set. After some TLC – who knows? Thanks again.

Well, Richard Weeber, you did not ask for a price quote at what they might be worth, no did you. They are worth whatever someone is will to pay.

I would say the draw back on your Mephisto bottles is the color. People want somewhat realistic looking bottles. Namely the color of those bottles are similar to the original Rings and Things bottles. They made their's copper color also. I really never seen a booze bottle that was copper color.

What is good about your set is they are near the same size and still look good, if you have not used them then they would be in like new condition.

You should be able to get $300 to $500 for the set. Of course you need the original instructions that came with them as well. Mephisto Hus was sold many years ago to a company in Belgium.

I'm not sure who made my set of multiplying bottles or even where I got them from, but what I love about my set is you can even pour liquid from my bottle into the glass on the right. Then magically, liquid appears in the glass on the left when you want it to.

Richard.. I don't think you said you wanted to sell them. I think you would be hard pressed to find any as well made today without spending a fortune.
Paint and label 'em then use.

Pete, he does want to spend a fortune, he wants the $1500 set that were advertised on another thread. Hocus Pocus is selling them for the overseas guy.

Wizardpa, sounds like you have one of the last Ken Brooke items that Stevens sold years ago. They are not Muliplying Bottles, but Comedy Passe Passe bottles (3 bottle set). That is if they are green and have a flowing neck line. If so you have one of the best sets from Europe. They came with flexable tubes.

I suggest you get the Ken Brooke Comedy Passe routine as it is also a killer.
