Made c.1947 by the magician and skilled prop maker Theo Bamberg, known as Okito, the ‘club size’ cabinet allows for the magical transposition of a stack of checkers and a glass full of rice.

The case has a hand-painted and decal work finish and features the original checkers, tube and glassware. The estimate is $10,000-15,000.
