Are you are searching for something a little more out of the ordinary? Struggling to find a gift for the person who has everything? Or simply searching for a little piece of wonder and inspiration?
If so, you're in the right place. You are looking at a perfectly-sealed deck of playing cards inside a glass bottle.
These incredible art pieces, known as 'impossible bottles', are all individually hand-made and take many hours to create. The bottles have not been cut, melted or tampered with in any way. Everything inside has been put there through the bottle neck (which incidentally is barely one inch wide).
An impossible bottle makes a wonderful, unique gift and a great talking point!
The deck contains all 52 cards in perfect order, as well as both Jokers. It is still in its original, factory-sealed cellophane wrapping. There is a small 'window' cut into the side of the deck which clearly shows all the cards.
The bottle is a normal, 'off-the-shelf' bottle like any you would buy. It is solid glass, and has not been sawn, cut or otherwise abused in any way. The neck of the bottle is approximately 2.5cm (1 inch) wide. The cork in the top of the bottle is removable.
As all of these products are individually hand crafted, please allow three working days from point of order to dispatch.
Red/blue, Bicycle, Steampunk, Masters Edition and Vintage 1800 Series decks. Other decks considered by request.
Please state preferred deck version in red/blue by email, or in the PayPal comments box.

"Phil somehow finds the time to create some of the finest impossible bottles I have seen thus far...His work is impeccable and I give it my highest recommendation."

"...we are talking here about putting a WHOLE deck of cards inside a REAL bottle! You know, like those ships you see inside a bottle at the seaside, but done with real class!"
"I just received my bottle, and I'm absolutely amazed at the work that must have gone into producing such a work of art. You really have done the impossible!"
"Phil successfully managed to baffle me, my producer and all the show's guests with his pack of cards incarcerated in a bottle. I've now got one on my coffee table at home and it continues to confuse any visitors to the house."
"I think you have done an excellent job. I have bought some very strange and unusual items before, but have to say that the bottle is undoubtedly one of my favourite pieces already!"
"Thanks very much! The bottle arrived today and and has been the source of much debate in the office as to how you did it!"
"The impossible bottle made the perfect prize in our auction. It is beautifully made and Phil is a pleasure to deal with. I cannot thank him enough."
"Your bottles are just as good in real life as in the pictures. Keep up the good work!"
"Wow! The question is not only how did you get the cards in the bottle, but how did the cellophane stay on and the seal remain unbroken? This will haunt me for a long time - at 66, I hope I have another 30 years!"
