Davenports Vanishing Cigarette and Match Trick

The magician puts a lighted cigarette in the brass tube and places the cap on. After the magic words, the cap is removed and a match or two fall out – the cigarette has vanished. The tube may be examined. Complete with instructions. We have two examples, as illustrated. They are very similar. The one which is probably the earlier example, has Piccadilly Number 1 on the cigarette.
