The Tarbell Orange Vase*. Classic beauty as well as function. Destined to become a collectible.

“Exquisite!….. Truly dazzling…. Your products and skill never cease to amaze me”... Don Carlo Binetti, Italy.

The Tarbell Orange Vase has remained one of the true tests in turning skill for the wood turner. The stippling of the surface of the orange (shell and ball), can be accomplished in many ways. We developed a special ‘chattering tool’ that allowed us to simulate the skin of an orange. The vase itself is made from select Asian mahogany as are the orange and shell and the black portions (finials and legs) are made from rare-sorted-JAVANESE BLACK “SonoKeling” wood . The finish is our own blend of melamine with a lacquer overcoat and gold trim.

EFFECT: The performer displays a small vase that contains an orange. The orange is removed and suddenly multiplies into two. A silk hank is magically produced. This is used to cover the two oranges for a second and upon whisking the hank away, one orange has vanished.

The remaining orange is placed back into the vase and covered with the lid. The silk hank is tucked into the performers fist. A snap of the fingers and the silk hank changes into the orange. The vase is uncovered only to find that the orange has vanished!

You receive everything needed to accomplish this wonderful mystery. Your choice of mahogany or ebony finish.

*You are purchasing the custom Ebony/Gold dome version. Only six will be made this way.

Note: One photo looks like the dome is silver but it is gold.

Please note that this is a limited run and once it is sold out, we will not be turning more. The ebony finish is considered a custom finish;  Please allow 5 days for completion.

  1. James Barkley

    My Orange Vase arrived today and it is just stunning. Beautifully hand turned, the fit and finishes are perfect.
    I add classic illusions to every performance and this will be top of that list. (I might not even have to do the trick it looks so good).
    And displayed as part of my magic collection, it has become the crown jewel. It’s rare, hand made, beautiful and limited.
    Thanks very much. It is just a great piece.
