Maskelyne’s Mysteries magic set label

This label combines the Davenport demon with the famous Maskelyne name which was synonymous with top class magic in the UK in the first half of the 20th century. Davenports bought the assets of the Maskelyne business in 1935 and the use of the name Maskelyne on their range of magic sets after that date would have been an obvious choice. The blank white box on the label was left so that an additional message or the name of the retailer could be printed in it. For example, see ref N1167 for a box produced for Gamages.
