Kirby VanBirch also owned the duplicate to the Copperfield elevator. If memory serves, it also moved down cables.

I remember one being sold on Magic Auction and the ad mentioned it was one of the few that included the rights to fly it in. It might have been Steven Klines but I'm not sure. Maybe Kirby bought that one.

Best,

Hi there

Well, I printed the magicauction site.

Tes description was this

"This illusio was built with the David Copperfield´s permission. The performance rights from Jim Steinmeyer and DC go with this prop. The illusion was build by John Gaughan and is in great condition...."

"... The proprietary alterations that belong to David Copperfield are the hanging of the prop in air, and the the blinds on the sides and front that open and close fully shoowing the inside of the prop...."

I think it was discussed that this was the one owned by Kirby VanBirch as a trade for an illusion DC used that he hwd the rights for. But I might be wrong.

The Oz elevator looks really nice

Hope that helps

Yep the one I saw was on magicauction and an exact duplicate of Copperfields. Was over 30,000 dollars. Nicest appearance ever... especially this version needing no assitants, all self working.

Yep, Frewin's elevator has had quite a few owners in the last couple years. I got it on a trade from a guy (I believe he was from Puerto Rico) who had bought it from Zigmont. I in turn traded it to Bairefoot who traded it a couple weeks later to Frewin. For those interested here is a link to an old picture of it.

To say its a 'beast' is an understatement. I forget exactly, but I think in the 3 crates it weighed right at 1000 pounds total. When assembled, I couldn't get it out my garage door, and that is without the floor indicator piece on. (was around 9-1/2 foot tall with the top piece)

It may have been enormous, but it was definitely a nice illusion!

Nice shots. Does it get better mileage than a Toyota?
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

Videokideo,

Did it sell already? I don't see it.

Yes, it was only listed for a couple of days. It looked like it belonged to Garry Carson.

It seems Rick Wilcox owns a version, as well.
