Rainbow Puzzle

(1 customer review)

A tray on the performer’s table contains what appears to be an abstract picture, but which (as the performer explains) is actually a rainbow puzzle with, however, one of the colours of the rainbow missing, namely blue.

A cover is removed from another smaller tray to reveal the blue ‘puzzle’ piece which should have been included in the rectangular puzzle had there but been a space available for it.

The performer now sets about correcting this problem by first tipping the four sections of the puzzle out of the tray and then replacing them so that they once again form a rectangular puzzle, but this time WITH AN OBLONG HOLE IN ITS CENTRE into which the blue puzzle piece would obviously fit.

Covers are now placed over each of the trays. The performer then picks up the covered smaller tray containing the blue puzzle piece and shakes it from side to side. The blue piece is distinctly heard hitting the sides of the tray. SUDDENLY ALL GOES QUIET. The cover of the smaller tray is now removed. The tray is empty: THE BLUE PUZZLE PIECE HAS VANISHED!

The performer then removes the cover on the larger tray to reveal that THE PUZZLE IS NOW COMPLETE WITH THE BLUE PIECE IN ITS RIGHTFUL PLACE.

Both trays and covers are made in teak. The trays measure 2.25 inches x 2 inches and 2 inches x 1.6 inches.

    It never fails to feel like a kid on Christmas Day opening his favorite gift when a parcel arrives in the mail from Alan Warner. Even after so many deliveries in the past years, that enchantment has never dwindled. I also know that many collectors have their favorite Warner items, selling off those that didn’t please them, yet I have kept every single Warner piece I have bought. I can’t say the same with the many great names in magic I have been a loyal customer over the years. I guess this is a testament to the great magic from this one man.

    This is indeed another beautiful puzzle effect, distinct from The Oracle or Red Chinese Puzzle, both marvelous effects, too. There is the gorgeous design, the bright colours, and the meticulous teak craftsmanship. The classic puzzle mystery is enhanced by a transposition effect involving the missing piece, and all comes nicely packaged in that classic mini-magic size. Love the lid decor which also serves as an aid in the performance…Alan thinks of everything.

    Most Highly Recommended!
