I have a chrome plated copper Chalice which is used to change silks, similar to the change bag. I have had this for over 45 years and have not seen one since. Has anyone else seen this magic trick before? To help identify the item, I have attached a photo.

IDK, but, I would guess early 1900s. --and very possibly European. Conradi-Horster?

Thank you for the information regarding Conradi-Horster. I will do some research. This is indeed one of my treasures Bruce, just like the Lippincott Box I purchased many years ago. I have been told it is English, maker unknown. I have attached a photo if anyone is interested is looking at it and maybe tell me the maker. Again I have not seen this item on the net.

You should probably send those both to me and I can take a closer look in person. Smile
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

For anyone interested I found an identical Chalice to my one above that went for auction at Potter and Potter Auctions a while ago. They identified it as a handkerchief burning globe. English (with a ? mark) ca 1890. It sold for US$600.00. Knowing this information, I will be keeping it until death do us part.

Sounds like a true treasure!
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
