Nickel Plated Demon Wonder Box

This nickel plated box is shown empty and then a number of handkerchiefs are produced from it. This was a very popular trick first marketed by Davenports in 1934. The inside lid of the box is stamped with the Davenports demon head logo and the registered design number: 791997. Davenports purchased the UK rights from Janos Bartl in Germany, who invented the trick. Bartl sold the trick under the name ‘Silkwonder’. The screws on the corners of this model have non-rounded heads. Some models – for example see N46 – have rounded screw heads. Note that the stamp inside the lid differs from that of N46.
