A small, slotted, oblong block is placed inside a cover with a similar slot in it, and a length of ribbon is then threaded through both the cover and the block. The cover, with the threaded block inside it, is suspended from the middle of the ribbon. On command, the block penetrates the ribbon and falls out of the cover, leaving the cover still suspended from the ribbon.
STYLISH QUALITY APPARATUS
The cover is beautifully done in gloss black and white lacquers with black trim, the block in black lacquer, and the remaining prop, the ribbon, is a bright orange in colour.
