Although the classic Homer Hudson two-door Die Box has been recently knocked-off in a poorly made version from China.  The contemporary copy lacks the quality that Hudson put into his box, and it is unfortunate that some magicians (who only see the knock-off box) may not understand why Hudson's famous Die Box is so well-loved by knowledgeable magicians around the world.   The size is perfect for those living room shows that are so common for most magicians, and the sound of the sliding die is perfect -- not too loud, not too soft.  The special feature that allows the die to be shown in the box is wonderful, and the lion-dragon sillouette design is tasteful but still has an air of the mysterious.

This box has been used, and shows it.  You can see in the pictures where the black paint could use some touch ups.  But otherwise, this is in great shape. No original instruction sheet, but I will provide a copy of the sheet that Golden's shop used with the box.  Mint condition examples of the Hudson Die Box sell for $200 on eBay and other auction sites.  Used examples often fetch over $100.  Get it here for less.

Sucker Sliding Die Box -- 4-door
A favorite of magicians for at least a century (I am guessing here, not sure when it really was invented...), it is odd that we do not see this classic effect performed more often! It has a great look, and the plot has immediate audience appeal. Plus the "sucker" element is so "obvious" and makes the performer look so silly, that the audience usually knows from the start that they are having their legs pulled, which I think lets them enjoy the magic that much more! The effect: a handheld cabinet (about 8.5" by 4.5") is shown, and from inside, a large die is removed and put into a hat on the table (use your own hat). The cabinet has side by side doors on the front. "I can make the die fly visibly back into the box" claims the magician, and suiting actions to words, he visibly picks the die up from the hat and puts it back in the box. "Not a good trick, but I can also cause the die to invisibly fly from the box!" The die is seen through one of the open front doors, which is closed, and the box tilited sharply. A sliding noise is heard, and the door is opened again to show the die is gone. Of course, the audience knows it has slid to the other side. To open the other door, the magi closes the first door, tilts the box back (again, the sliding noise) and opens the second door. This goes on as long as good comedy timing will allow, finally both doors are open, plus doors on top, and the box is definitely empty. The die is removed from the hat! The sliding sound on this box is great, not a cheap little weight sliding that sounds way too small to be the big die. Buy this!
