Production Christmas pudding

This was a one-off prop made for use in a Maskelyne sketch. The Maskelyne’s Christmas 1933 season at the Little Theatre included an item called: We’ve been to a shop. It took the form of words sung to the tune of ‘Here we come gathering nuts in May’ and was illustrated with conjuring tricks. The Christmas pudding was magically produced during the final verse of the song. The original script for this show is in the Davenport Collection.
