This is a Supreme Magic production which has humour and a surprise finish. The idea is that you have a small invisible leprechaun in a box which follows the movements of the magician, and manages to do a rope trick. The surprise is that Lenny actually appears at the end of the trick. Apparently the trick was first devised in Ireland. It was shown by Billy McComb at one of the meetings of the Ulster Society of Magicians during the 1940s. This is the revived version from which Billy McComb derived great entertainment value. Complete with instructions.

In 1982 John and Anne had seven glasses engraved with a demon’s head, based on one of the Davenport demon trademarks. They were to give to people who had been particularly helpful with our researches into the story of the Davenport family. We kept one glass and the others went to Harry Carson, Frank Lane, Peter Lane, Billy McComb, Richard Stupple and Peter Warlock. On the bottom of each glass is engraved ‘CJF Gould 82 Cambs’. CJF Gould was a glass engraver who lived in Fen Ditton near Cambridge.
