Maybe up-close they do, but most audiences can hardly even see the very bottom of the bottle in the first place.

I have read some posts that want the turned in bottom, but really, when will the audience see this feature. Do you see the bottom of my Ken Brooke Multiplying Bottle set in my Avatar. If you are on stage or platform, the bottoms will not even be seen. If you invest in the Multiplying Bottle Trays from FAB Magic, the bottles set in a recess. And if you pay this much for a beautiful set like this why wouldn't you want to make sure nothing happens to them.

A woman might wear lace panties, and most of you will never see them. But, it makes them feel good knowing that they are there.

Very funny Michael.

I must agree with wmhegbli statement. Since this effect is more of a parlor or stage effect, the audience will not really see the bottom of the bottles.

You can aswell use a table which has a little higher decoration frame on the outside, nobody would see if the bottles bottoms are straight or turned in.

Anyway, a perfect look is important, but the smooth and no scratch operating is aswell very important. On this point I have to agree with Michael Kent, the most important parts for a realistic looking multiplying bottles set are :

- the color and the general form of the bottle
- the label (recognizable and perfect match of existing product)
- the color and form of the bottle neck

kh-magus : Your set looks realistic and perfect, but maybe to perfect for a long and repeating operating time...(concerning the turned in bottom).

Oliver.

Good Morning!

Very interesting! It is a helpful discussion for me.
Thank you so much!

We also use the tray.
Therefore, it may be meaningless except when the bottle is lifted.

If you refer to durability, my bottle is inferior to other bottles.
The thinnest part is only 0.7mm!
But the bottom curve has the function to increase strength.
We use this for two years. There was no problem for us.
Of course, it will become dented if you drop it on the floor.

Please see this pic.

I take this picture today.

Of course, It is easy for us to make the straight bottom.
However, in fact, the turned bottom don't cause a big trouble.
Trust me.

Don't you think that the paint is still beautiful?
THIS IS A POWDER COATING.
Though I haven't done yet, exchanging of the label is easy if you need.
You can also exchange the cap seal easily.
Because we use the heat shrinkage cap.
The color of this cap doesn't come off easily.
so you will seldom want to exchange it.

That is absolutely the most realistic set I have ever seen.
Wouldn't it be funny if the guy took photos of real bottles and is pulling a big joke on the magic fraternity.
I guess it wouldn't be funny to the guy who shells out $990 though!

Himber used to make multiplying bottles that looked almost that good. Unfortunately I sold my set to someone in Europe. Wish I still had 'em.

Would you be able to post a photo of the top openings of the bottles? I would like to see if they are similar to the Ken Brooke bottles.

Thank you.

I also think that it is expensive.
But while hard to believe, I only get a small commission on this bottle.

The adjustment of the thickness of the bottle depends on a craftsman's sense.
He said that It's very very delicate.
We made the plate of the label which includes gold leaf.
and also It costs $300.00 to just paint 9 bottles.

In the beginning, I made this for myself. I love multiplying bottles.
but I wasn't satisfied with the bottles on the market.
We made the bottles regardless of expenses.
Though I was working as illusionist until 12 years ago,
(I will be 41 years old soon.)
I didn't compromise in the quality of the illusion at that time, either.

I think that Multiplying bottole is not easy act.
It depends on a character of the magician.
Japanese magicians must work on the various bad conditions.
Most of them never tried to make bottles within the repertory.

Doug:

I have never seen Ken Brooke bottles.
These are my own set.
http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/9.jpg
http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/nest.jpg
Cap seal was torn off from the bottle on the market,
and I used them in this set.
It's made by metal and damaged easily.
Therefore, I am using plastic seal now.
I hope you like it.

This is exposed view.
I hide a file name a little.

The ore pictures I see, the more I want to sell a whole unch of props and by a set, even though I wouldnt have a clue what to do with them. Someone said that it woul be funny if he was showing us actual bottles instead of a set of gimmick bottles. I agree, we would all be fooled. You should take a real bottle and a bottle from this set a take a picture of them together, I'm sure you wouldnt be able to see the difference.

These bottles look amazing!

Is there a website to order from?

I think I'd have to see these bottles to believe it!

Hello magiclimber,

Thank you for your interest in our bottles!

I intended to sell our bottles to everyone directly for under $1000.
However, I went into the business talk with a certain dealer now.
A price may change if it is decided that they sell our bottles.

If it is not so, I will open our web site.

I wonder if the bottles pictured in http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/bottle.jpg are a set of bottles, or a lot of bottles of the same size.

I see that in http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/9.jpg and http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/kenbrooke.jpg and in http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/today.jpg and again in http://www.primavera9.net/images/stage.jpg the bottles have different labels. Also at http://www.spellbound.co.jp/images/kenbrooke.jpg the bottles don't seem to have all that close a fit.
