Miniature model of magician’s table
This is an example of ‘pipitis’, the condition which leads magicians to collect items associated with cards, dice, top hats, rabbits etc. We are grateful to magician Chris Woodward who told us he has a similar table. He believes it was a giveaway at a magicians convention on the continent of Europe round about the 1950s. Chris recalls that the table, as produced, also had a pyramid of billiard balls, a wand and a book of tricks on it.
