As collectors we all eventually end up with duplicates or items that no longer fit our collecting vision. Below you will find several items that may be of interest to you.
A note about shipping: As a collector I am always concerned until the new addition to my collection is in my hands. I have had “treasures” damaged in shipping. See my Traveling Magician for one example. All shipping is via insured USPS Priority Mail or UPS depending on the item. I apologize if in some cases, this results in high shipping costs, but my goal is to get your new treasure to you in the same condition as it was in my collection.

Reproduction of Jack Gwynne’s Temple
This temple was made as an exact reproduction of Jack’s personal temple that was in Marshall Brodien’s collection. The paint exactly like the original and really aids in the deceptive quality of this illusion. The temple is well constructed and was made by a cabinet maker. The temple is in excellent condition.
Owned and used by comedy magic legend Fielding West.
