Beads of Prussia
Beads of Prussia (also known the Carmo Beads, the Arabian Beads, Albenice Beads, the Arabian Bead Mystery and the Bead Trick) is an effect where a handful of beads and a piece of string are swallowed (or placed in a glass) and brought out strung again.
Created in late 1920s by Carmo the Great and performed by him as a pet effect to the end of his career. He sold all rights in 1938 to Davenport's who first marketed it in 1940.
Featured by John Albenice at his Arabian Night Club in New York City.
