Chefalo’s Double Botania

ca. 1930. Hammered metal cone with Asian motif picturing a buddha, ship, and lanterns, is shown empty by allowing a clear view through it. The magician then produces two large feather flower bouquets (taller than the cone itself) from inside. Height of bouquets approximately 31″, height of cone 18″. Lacks pots for displaying flowers. Obtained by Ken Klosterman from the collection of Dr. Hugo Pulggari, who purchased the Double Botania from Fu Manchu. The apparatus was presented to Fu Manchu by Chefalo. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the owner of Pulggari’s collection tracing the history of the props.
