Hughes End of the Rainbow
Possibly the most desirable effect made by Jack Hughes.
While the effect is documented in the Hughes book, the method he used here is different.
For the effect, a cabinet on a base is rolled on stage the sides and front panel are opened to show the empty blue interior.
The doors are closed and a large bundle of ribbons is shown and then pushed a bit through a hole in the front door. The performer steps away and then something from within the cabinet begins to pull the ribbons inside until they no longer can be seen.
The performer removes the front door and opens the sides to reveal that the interior has changed from painted blue to ornate scenery and in the center is a doll wearing a dress apparently made from the ribbons.
The apparatus is quite a masterpiece. The scenery is all handpainted. The mechanisim that pulls in the ribbons is concealed in the base and utilizes a large spring powered motor that is cranked up before the performance.
This outfit would be a standout piece in any collection.
Condition is very good.
