Harry Leat’s Humpty Dumpty trick

This is complete with the five silks. This was a dealer item from Harry Leat aimed at a children’s audience. The effect is that the magician produces from a sheet of paper an illustrated silk handkerchief showing Humpty Dumpty. As the silk is returned to the paper, another one is produced, this time showing Humpty Dumpty sitting on the wall. In all, five silks tell the story of the nursery rhyme. At the end of the trick a 3D Humpty Dumpty is produced from the paper and all the silk handkerchiefs have vanished.
