The Mummy. Holland, Eddy Taytelbaum, ca. 1968. A tiny mummy vanishes from one sarcophagus and reappears in another. Carrying case of wood and laminate, cloth-lined, and decorated in blue with gold pinstriping. Sarcophagi in blue and maroon, with gold pinstriping and reverse-painted laminate decorations on lids and sides. Outer case 4 3/8” square. Rhinestones possibly later addition. Fine. Considered Taytelbaum’s masterpiece of micro-magic, his Mummy trick exemplifies the fine work he was capable of, as his attention to detail is present in every aspect of its construction. From the thin pinstriping to the reverse-painted accents, to the way in which a variety of materials are combined into the finished product reflect the true mastery Taytelbaum had over the materials with which he worked.
