Vintage Davenport Sand Canisters or “The Great Sand and Sugar Trick” circa 1930’s

Winning Bid: $1,226.00

These have been completely restored in the Okito style.  The internal mechanism (and there is a lot going on in both) functions perfectly.  The basic effect is the small can is emptied fills the larger can to overflowing. The lid is put on and when opened the large can is shown empty. The just emptied smaller can is once again used to fill the large can again to overflowing. This is repeated several times. It is a truly amazing effect with rare beautiful props. Wonderful rare historical display item (yes it is ready to preform if you wish to do that too!). The tall canister is 12 inches by 6.5 inches and the smaller canister is 10.25×4.25 inches. The Davenport logo in each lid. Great addition to any collection of historical apparatus. With instructions.

Estimate $800-1200
