Dove pan

Unknown manufacturer. An elaborate version of this trick is given in a 1930s Davenport catalogue: the performer borrows two rings and drops them into the pan, then he breaks in eggs and other ingredients to suit taste. He now mixes the whole lot together finally setting fire to it, and putting the lid on. After a few seconds he removes the lid, and out fly two doves with the borrowed rings tied around their necks with ribbon.
