Created by Shigeru Sugawara, complete with the frame, sliding panel and six pencils for the trick. Effect explained on box, lacking paper instructions. Apparatus unused. Box shows mild wear from handling and is tape-repaired at one edge. Tenyo's description: "A simple frame holds a solid panel, in which there are two and only two holes. The frame is dropped into a handsome case and three - not two - pencils are thrust through the panel. Two pencils are removed leaving only the bottom pencil. The pencil is lifted straight upwards. It melts through the panel emerging in the top hole."
