These are terrific! In fact, we believe they are the finest set of magnetic locking slates you can see. The Spirit Slates have proven to be an extremely popular and versatile prop over the ages for stage performers, mentalists, and parlor prestidigitators.
These Spirit Slates give you a hands-free, no nonsense method of revealing mysterious writing. The flap lies perfectly flat and is invisible even under the most difficult of performing conditions. The Slates may even be handed out for close examination of the writing. They will see nothing suspicious. Nothing!
The performer presents two chalkboard slates and shows them blank on both sides. Placing a small piece of chalk between the wooden slates, he rubber bands them together. When the slates are reopened, the name of a selected card or writing on a burned billet has magically appeared on the slates. Spooooooky!
The slates themselves measure approximately 7" by 9 3/4" with beautiful mahogany wooden frames.
Dimensions Approximately 11 3/4" x 9" (30cm x 23cm)
Comes complete with 2 Spirit Slates, chalk and instruction sheet.
* The flap in the slates is not what we at PropDog would descrive as perfect fitting. The slates do work great and the flap would not be seen when performing on stage but may be spotted during a parlour or more intimate performance where the audience are closer.
