Hi to everybody. I missed for a long time from forum.
Sorry always for my very poor English.
A question:
Is there anyone that can give me info about multiplying glasses (filled with colored drinks) at the top of finger? I mean that Peter Marvey used in some performances. It is like multiplying pipes, candles and similar..... The glasses are like calix ....
I think I have seen the selling of this item, but I can't remember details.
Thanks advance to who help me!!!!

Peter Marvey's Multiplying Phisher Glasses is not on the market, just like his Card Catcher. These items are custom made equipment just for his act.

Yep, I can confirm what Bill posted. The glasses were made for his act. I've seen similar glasses used where liquid changes color, but I've never seen the multiplication for sale.

Sam Berland used to make and sell a set of multiplying shot glasses. This was in the 1960's. A better made set would be great. His was too cheap looking and not convincing.

In watching marvey's act it appeared as though the glasses were nested. I imagine this would not be too hard to duplicate

Really? Then go ahead and then post photos of your work. From your statement, I take it you are plastics expert craftsman.

There are multiply gimmicks to his glass routine, if you would concentrate on the act, you should see that. His steals and exchanges are so masterful, no one see him do all the work involved, that is as it should be of course.

Marvey's routine is exquisite. It is the routine that got me to buy McBride's card manipulation series and practice for hours. To the layman I'm sure the Martini sequence is just as impressive, however even though I was just 10 at the time, after watching the routine a few times I was able to work out how it was performed. That being said, handed the gimmicks today I probably couldn't even perform it poorly. Additionally I was not speaking of personally duplicating the work, however speak to the right manufacturer in China and you could have it made pretty quickly. I could draw up some blueprints. If there is enough demand I might even consider going ahead and doing that.
