Prior to the effect being performed, a beautiful wooden chest is
padlocked and handed to the person in charge of the venue.

He also agrees to display it prominently until the show day with a small
sign stating, "This Chest Contains A Prediction of the Future."

On the evening of the show, the person in charge is given the key to open the chest.

Inside he finds a folded piece of paper.

Another spectator then reads the headlines of the day's newspaper out loud.

The person in charge now reads out the written prediction.

They are the same, not word for word, but there can't be any
doubt that the performer has indeed predicted the future!

The Telegraph Chest measures approximately 10cm wide, 8.8cm high and 8cm deep and has been
completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish.

Slightly tarnished brass hardware has also been fitted for an age look.

The clever injection method for the prediction billet has been assembled
using over 50 wooden parts and has taken over 40 hours to make.

It also comes complete with a wooden key box that measures approximately
8.5cm wide, 5.5cm high and 6cm deep and includes a padlock and keys.

The instructions have been written by John Talbot and outline extra
routines which can be performed with the "The Telegraph Chest."
