Maskelyne’s Mysteries magic set

The label on the lid uses the Maskelyne’s Mysteries name, owned by Davenports following their purchase of the Maskelyne business assets in 1935. Note that the instructions on the inside of the lid are headed Demon Box of Conjuring Tricks. This probably means the box is a relatively early one – in later boxes Davenports no longer used the name Demon on the lid.


Size Box size 330 x 300 x 50mm.
Date Probably late 1930s
