Samuel's Wine Tassels

Two tassels hang in any appropriate place on the stage, apparently for mere drapery effect. They are made to resemble the ordinary heavy, every-day tassel, used to tie up heavy curtains, etc. The body of tassel is hollow spun metal of sufficient capacity to contain a full glass of wine. Air hole in top of fake. Plug in bottom drawn out of fake by performer pulling smartly on thread which hangs below tassel, at a very short distance thread is not visible.

An extraordinary improvement can be made by having a rubber tube covered to represent cord, connected with one of these tassels by an opening made in the top of the hollow receptacle. Rubber tube fitting over a hollow metal connection.
