Prop Maker

‘Maywari, The Wish Maker’. Little is known about this most interesting ornate contraption. It was acquired in the 1930's by a small museum in Norfolk. The box was left at the museum’s doorstep, hastily wrapped in a brown paper and heavily tied with a thick rope. A note on the side of the box read, ‘Use with extreme caution, Maywari holds many secrets’. Much research went into its origins but after at disturbing incident with a visitor in 1967 it was decided to hold it in a secure vault.
