Conjurers Outfit

Cica 1950's

These sets seem to have come in a variety of "sizes", but mostly I have come across this one. 14 tricks.

The two sets below are almost identical. With one exception!
Box 1 has the wire spiral illusion.
Box 2 has a trick with ring and string.
Box 2 seems to be a slightly newer version. Possibly early 1960's

Neither box has any makers mark on them.

Conjurers Outfit - Box 1

This set is complete and in pretty good condition throughout everything that should be there is there.

One small tear in the bottom edge of the box lid. A piece of the picture has ripped off where some sellotape was on the left side of the box lid.

Finally... If you look at the enlarged picture you will see where someone has drawn on the box lid. They have filled in the "S" in stage and written in the words. Also some scribbling across the words conjurers outfit.. Although not as noticeable as you expect. A couple of other small marks.

In all apart from the marks in nice condition

Price: £30

Conjurers Outfit - Box 2
Click on image to view larger picture

Generally this set is in excellent condition. Its only flaw I can find is the top right corner of the tray has torn but is almost unnoticeable.

Otherwise it is complete and in very nice condition. No marks on the box at all

The colouring on the lid is very clean and bright. Although the contents are all but one identical, I would say this aimed at a slightly younger demographic.

Price: £35

Maskelynes magic set - (Gamagic)






Produced by Gamages (Gamagic set no 2)

This set as far as I can make out is actually complete.

(Often you find there is one odd bit missing)







The box itself unfortunatley has two sides missing from the lid.

It also has a small tear in the side of the base.

(You can see this hopefully in the pictures)







The contents however are complete and in outstanding condition

However still an outstanding addition to your collection.

David Nixon Magic Sets

Over the last few years I had a spate of collecting all and every magic set that cam my way. Many of them incomplete. However, after having to downsize the shop I don't have the room to keep them all. Sooooo, I have sorted through the all and in this case particularly have managed to make several complete (in fact I think more than complete in some cases.

There never quite seemed to be a set pattern as to everything that would be in these boxes. I did come across a small list of everything they actually did for these. You could actually buy each and every trick separately.

David Nixon Large Set (Red Box)









This was I believe the largest of the David Nixon sets.
Please see the pictures to get an idea of its condition. Unfortunately as with most sets the lids were never in great condition the corners usually gone. And often something marring the face of the lid.

With this box one of the corners has gone and some tape has held it shut at some time.

The contents... As usual the tape has come away with the passage of time. And the metallic colored items have some "mottling" not sure if that's the right word but the best I can come up with.

David Nixon Standard box (Blue)

Box 1

Of the two "blue" boxes, which seem to the "standard" set. This is the slightly better of the two. The lid is in very good condition with only a small white label in the corner. (See top picture of the three together - left)

Overall this set is in pretty good condition for its age with only the expected wear and tear.

David Nixon Standard box (Blue)

Box 2

Another blue set.

Unfortunately the lid of this set has suffered corner damage. And is a little faded in comparison to the above set.

The contents however are in nice condition and as far as I can ascertain complete if not slightly over so.

Six Magical Card Tricks (Box)






This set of card tricks is a little bit of a mystery and I am uncertain of the manufacturer. Usually somewhere on the box it would give you some indication. Here... No! With the exception of "Made in England".

At first glance I would say it looks like Ellisdons, but it might be Davenports as they did put some out very similar to these. So this may have been made either of these for someone else.

Do have any idea. If so please do tell me!

This set is in very good condition. It has to be at least 50 years old possibly older.
