Water Torture Cell remains on eBay

Remnants of the original Houdini Water Torture Cell are being offered for sale on eBay. The remains come framed with a picture of the cell and with a Certificate of Authenticity by former cell owner, Sidney Radner.

The original Houdini Water Torture Cell was destroyed in a fire in 1995. It was resorted in 2000 and sold at auction to magician David Copperfield in 2004.

One wonders if Mr. Copperfield was ever made aware of these "remnants from the restoration"?

Bidding starts at $1,250.
