Abbott Magic Announces Retro Abbott Project

neonisticsilkfountainThe “Retro Abbott” project is under way and will involve re-creating illusions that were popular in the 40’s thru the 80’s but then became either too cumbersome to build or materials to build them became scarce. The first prop being built is the “Neonistic Silk Fountain” In this illusion the magician produces silks from a lightbult. Abbotts has about ten props it wants to re-create and narrowed it down to three before deciding on the silk fountain (The other two being the “Coke of Plenty” and the “Bathing Beauty” effects. Abbott’s plans to build only a few of these props and make them available to Magicians and Magic Collectors on a “first come, first serve” basis.

Below is a picture of one of the first Neonistic Silk Fountains built in the last several decades, thanks to Walter Weaver for this photo and to Greg Bordner and Abbotts for bringing back some of the Magic of the decades past.
