The magician displays a beautiful steamer trunk. Volunteers from the audience can assist the magician by moving the trunk in place, opening the hinged lid, and giving the trunk a thorough inspection. Next the magician displays a pair of handcuffs or other wrist restraint device, and a cloth bag. The magician’s assistant enters the trunk and then is handcuffed. Next she enters the bag and one of the volunteers tie the bag closed with a piece of rope. The assistant bends down inside the box, the lid is closed, and the trunk is locked. Next the magician hops up on top of the trunk and raises a tubular curtain. On the simple count of three, the curtain is dropped and the assistant is now standing on top of the trunk! The trunk is opened and the magician is found in the trunk, and handcuffed inside the cloth bag.

This effect was made famous by Harry Houdini and appropriately named the Metamorphosis (means "change"). Our Deluxe Substitution Trunk is made out of the finest luan and is finished with Formica laminate (customer's choice as to the color or pattern). The trunk is finished with chrome looking trim and steel ball corners. The trunk is very sturdy and many magicians use the trunk to actually transport other magic props they use in their act. This is a beautiful prop that looks like a piece of furniture. Made by Chadwick Illusion Fabrications by special arrangement with Abbott’s Magic Company. $5000 FOB. Handcuffs, bag, and tubular curtain not included.
