The Apotheosis of the Rose. German, ca. 1910. Fine props for the effect devised by Hofzinser in which a rose appears on the surface of a mirror, fades to white, then falls from the glass, and finally the mirror is shown whole at the conclusion. Together with the complimentary apparatus used to produce the rose in a cut glass vase, then change the color of the rose. This latter prop likely manufactured by Rudiger Deustch from vintage parts, and including a variety of gimmicked flowers for the final color change of the rosebud. Height of mirror 15”. With fitted case. Evidence of resoldering at top of handle, but in good working condition.Hofzinser’s complete routine for the Rose Mirror, as it is now commonly known, is described in The Magic of J.N.
