The magician shows a copper coin – an old English penny – and covers it with a handkerchief, saying that it will change into a sovereign. The audience expects to see a gold sovereign coin, but on the removal of the handkerchief there is a statue of the Sovereign, King George VI. The statue is marked DEMON.
The magician asks a spectator to mark a coin so that it can be recognised again. The coin is vanished (by your favourite method!) and is found trapped inside these two plates which are bound together with numerous rubber bands. A Davenport demon head is embossed on the front of each cover.
A nest of four bakelite boxes, the outer one of which is decorated with a Davenport demon head trademark. The magician vanishes a coin and then it is found in the inner of the four boxes.
This trick was invented by Brian MacCarthy. The performer is able to mysteriously pass a playing card through this wand. The wand is stamped DEMON on one of the white ends.
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.
The performer pours loose chain links onto the tray, so that the audience can see that they are separate. The links are then poured into a glass, where they magically transform into a linked chain. A Davenport demon head is painted on the base of the tray.
This framed label from a 1920s Davenport magic set was previously on the wall of Pat Page’s house. See letter of certification on the back of the picture frame.
In a 1939 Davenports ‘Demon Telegraph’ this was advertised as the Great Canary Vanish, as featured by the Great Levante at all the leading music halls. There is a Davenport demon seal on the top of the caddy.
