Strong Box (Lippincott Box). Bayside, New York: Charles Kalish, ca. 1975. An innocent aluminum strong box, which, even though it is locked, allows the magician access to its contents. 2" wide. Fine. Scarce. Charles Kalish was a builder and inventor of equipment for photographic processing, but also manufactured fine magic props in limited numbers. His design for this prop has been adopted by several current manufacturers, but Kalish was the first to produce a metal Lippincott box in this design.
