Collector's Workshop (Middleburg, VA) "Time Odyssey". I pick this prop up personally and Nick showed me how to set it up and work this amazing effect. Since then, it has been preformed just a couple of times, spending 95% of the time in it's travel case. It is in like new condition. Time Odyssey is rather hard to find, especially in this condition.
George Robinson at Viking has not reproduced this prop since purchasing Collector's Workshop many years ago. A brass alarm clock is removed from a shepherds crook stand on a table and placed inside a tube on another table. The performer indicates the clock will vanish. The performer places the clock in a tube and steps forward to perform the vanish. At this point, however, the drape on the table falls away and it is apparent to all that the clock has been secured in a net under the table.
And, the clock is ringing! Embarrassed, the performer turns around and shoots a gun (or waves his hand) toward the clock.
Immediately, the clock stops ringing, the net drops and clock has vanished. Satisfied, the performer turns to face the audience. Moments, thereafter, however, the alarm bell rings again.If you would like to see this effect performed.... There are videos available on line.... A simple search will allow you to see this in action.
I have posted several photos of the prop inside it's custom packing case. One photo of Time Odyssey is a stock photo showing how it looks completely set up and ready to preform. The only difference I see is the material used for the Japanese Lantern drape. The one I have for sale is blue & black. Comes complete with original instructions.
