This a a vintage pre-owned item from the P & L Manufacturing Company in New Haven, Connecticut. We acquired this from an old magician’s estate buy-out. The red painted surface has numerous chips and scratches and there is one very tiny dent near the center of the tube. The chrome drum head rings are in very good condition.
Effect: The magician shows a red painted metal tube to be completely empty and then seals the ends with tissue paper and chrome rings to create a drum head appearance. A flashlight can be shinned through the tube and tissue papers showing that the tube is still empty. Yet, at any time the performer wishes, he breaks the paper drum head at the end of the tube and makes a large production of silk handkerchiefs, ribbons, streamers, etc.
Note: You receive tube and chrome rings as pictured. No instructions but we will type up something for the buyer if they need them. Let us know. You supply your production items.
The tube measures 10-1-4″ long by 3″ in diameter.
