Introducing the Limited Edition Erdnase Close-Up Mat, expertly made by Vorst and Bosch.

To celebrate our partnership with V&B, we are launching this limited edition close-up mat. These pads are made by the V&B family of craftsman with the highest quality materials. For thirty years, the Bosch family have been manufacturing exquisite furniture in The Netherlands. They are a family of artisans and their work has been sought after by some of the most famous names in Europe, including the British Royal Family.

Over the last two years, we’ve worked side-by-side with the Bosch family to develop a range of close-up pads which are, without question, the world’s finest. Each mat is handmade-to-order in the Netherlands and then shipped directly to you. The care and attention to detail that goes into each one is breathtaking, and each mat is made of a blend of the finest woods and textiles on offer.

A Cloth Inspired by the Book The Expert at the Card Table has such an iconic cover. The rustic green cloth texture is immediately recognizable so we knew that we needed to find a material worthy of holding the Erdnase name. Alongside V&B, we procured the ideal cloth. This synthetic wool is addictively soft and is a joy to practice your favorite card table moves on. The texture makes it so unique and eye-catching. It is the perfect compliment to the gorgeous leather base.

The Base The Limited Edition mat features a luxurious wooden base, adorned with a premium grade brown leather. It is robust and weighty and sits firmly on any tabletop. On the underside, you will find the signature of Vanishing Inc. and V&B, plus the unique number. Only 100 will ever be produced so this is your chance to own an enviable accessory which is sure to become sought after.

The Bosch family have spent thirty years mastering their art, and now, thanks to the V&B Close-Up Pad, they are going to help us master ours.

Dimensions: 21.5" x 13" x 1.5"

Customer reviews for V&B Limited Edition Close-Up Mat (Erdnase Edition)



The best close up pad you will ever buy! The close up pad has a very nice hefty weight to it. Unlike some hard back close up pads, you don’t have to worry about bending or breaking this one. It looks and feels rugged, like a well made piece of furniture. The feet/studs on the bottom that raise the pad up, was a nice touch. The limited edition green contrasts nicely with most playing card backs and the fine wool feels great for spreading cards on. All in all it was the best magic related purchase I’ve made in the past 2 years.

    • 1. Sven answers: Hey Jeremy, The total weight of the erdnase pad is around 3 kg if you want a light weight pad. You can consider the regular V&B pad??

  • Nicolas asks: Can the pad be use without the base directly on a table or it will damage it?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It can be but we recommend keeping the two components together.
  • SVLVTTOI Sergio asks: Care instructions? How to clean? I suppose the insert of this limited edition is different? And the black and the burgundy insert, how to clean?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: From the creator: Do not use any chemicals. Use a little bit of water. And a soft brush for dirt. Almost all of the fabrics we use are self cleaning. You just have to wipe them from time to time. A soft lint remover brush can work wonders.
  • Thedmo asks: Is the inlay on the Erdnase edition meant to be switchable?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes.
    • 2. Thedmo answers: Thank you. I can attest to the superior quality of the Dutch velcro. ??
    • 3. Thedmo answers: Should have been a winking smiley, not two question marks. Rats. Great workmanship, without a doubt.
  • Michael asks: Is the base from the limited edition any different than the deluxe base?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: They are the same,
