"Houdini Seance Handcuffs"

This is a very interesting custom-made item:


Up for auction is an extremely nice pair of the Houdini seance handcuffs along with orig key.

They are marked along the lock tube houdini

This is the handcuff that Houdini had special made to defeat other handcuff kings at the turn of the century when he was conquering England. It made use of a special bramah lock and also employed set screws to adjust the inside diameter of the cuffs and freeze the wrist in position. This is also the pre cursor to the famous Mirror Handcuff.

This item was made by Ian McColl in Australia years ago. Ian is considered the greatest living handcuff maker in the World. His work appears in TV, Movies, Museums and Stage Productions around the World. This item was from a very limited run. I do not recall seeing one available before.

I have tried to show the item in the photos and apologize for the quality of them.

Bid now and congratulations to the lucky winner!! - eBay

This set of custom handcuffs had a high bid of $255 (Plus $9.95 Shipping) but did not meet the reserve price.
