Early 20th Century Toleware Magic Bottle Trick
We are proud to offer a rare example of an early 20th Century Toleware magic bottle trick. With original Pale Ale paper labels still in place, individually hand crafted toleware metal sectioned bottles, with a simple yet effective trick that would have once been used by a magician to wow the crowd with. The smaller of the two bottles fit into the larger one, when performing the trick you can firmly hold the inside lip of the smaller bottle and release the large bottle from underneath to reveal 2 bottle giving the illusion turning 1 into 2. Additionally, there is a metal tube that’s in the smaller of the 2 bottles, which goes into the main section of the smaller bottle, assuming this could have been used to pour water into and hiding the liquid once the bottle is separated. We are not magicians but know this is a cool original example and very collectable English magicians’ artifact and in all its original untouched condition.
