The Emperor's Orange Box is a limited edition illusion, constructed of solid walnut with custom hand cast pewter corners and hardware.
The magician displays a small cabinet with doors front and top. The front door is opened and the interior of the cabinet shown to be unmistakably empty.
The cabinet is then placed on a table, the top door opened and a length of heavy cord placed in the box. The ends of the cord are threaded through holes in the sides of the box and tied together in front. The cabinet may be given to a spectator to hold or left on the table in full view of the audience.
An orange is now selected from a tray of oranges and then made to disappear. A ring is borrowed from a member of the audience and made to disappear, too.
Attention is called to the ends of the cord which are still knotted together in front of the cabinet. The door is opened and the orange revealed inside the cabinet threaded on the cord.
After untying the ends of the cord, the orange and cord are pulled free of the cabinet. The orange is cut open and, in the center, knotted to the cord, is found the borrowed ring which may be removed and identified by the specta tor!
