Comments: Original manuscript came with the bags as sold
by The Supreme Magic Company, London. Effect has been reprinted in
Ganson's Unconventional Magic book. This is a cups and
balls style effect with a glass of liquid production climax.
The first publishing date is not clear - A magic profile on Peter Scarlett at MagicWeek.co.uk states that he won a 1956 competition using this effect, but the Conjuring Arts Research Library (http://www.conjuringlibrary.net) estimates the date at 1975.
