Kenard Mystery Box Supreme by Daytona Magic
(description excerpt courtesy of Martin's Magic Collection - with permission)

Kenard first sold his Mystery Box (Ring on Wand) c. 1941 and it has been made my many dealers ever since. This one is from Daytona Magic. Sometimes online Kenard is spelt with two 'n's as in Kennard - this is incorrect. His name was Kenard and he was a wholesale magic manufacturer (Kenard Novelty Co.), inventor and dealer in New York City (Kenard's Magic Shop) in the 1930's - 1950's.

Effect: A pocket size cabinet, a solid metal ring and a wooden dowel are shown. The ring is put at the bottom of the cabinet, and the are doors closed. Then wand is thrust through holes and cabinet shaken to prove rattling ring is free. Presto! Doors opened and ring is on wand! Examination permitted.

Your Assistance Requested

While it's true that I have constructed many of the effects displayed on this site, it's also true that I am not the creator/originator of how they function. As such, I have researched, to the best of my ability, to give credit where it's due. On some, I am at a total loss as to who the creator is, so I simply left that portion of the description, blank.

If any visitor to my site here, knows or suspects they may know the creator, please use the button below to contact me, if you will and steer me in the right direction. I'll be happy to add you to that credit, for your assistance, provided you approve of my doing so.
