Robin’s Maskelyne’s Mysteries magic set

The Davenport family used the name Maskelyne’s Mysteries for their range of magic sets following their purchase of the Maskelyne’s business assets in 1935. In the 1950s Gus Davenport supplied BR Robin with magic sets which were advertised to the wholesale market. See the advertisement illustrated. The red paper on this box was typically used for the Robin’s boxes. Later these boxes were sold by Robin’s, a partnership between Gus Davenport and Maureen Robin.
