285: Clingo Billiard Balls. Los Angeles, F.G. Thayer, C
Clingo Billiard Balls. Los Angeles, F.G. Thayer, Ca. 1925. Set of three white billiard balls and matching shell for the classic manipulative trick. Expertly turned by Thayer, who was best known for his turned wooden products, and finished with a concentrically scored pattern approximating the appearance of a golf ball, but more importantly allowing the performer a surer grip. Accompanied by a Clingo Silk to Ball gimmick and matching solid ball, ¼" larger than the multiplying Clingo set. Very good condition. Uncommon. ..................With: A cache of well worn multiplying golf balls with metal shells (likely Ireland), the knob and head of a faux golf club and other related props for what was likely a golf-themed routine in Fox's act.
