Lot 0081
Early Grant /MAK. The "automatic" version of the legendary Westgate Bowl Production. The wooden "crown" is removed from a silk-covered display stand and shown empty. The silk (not supplied) is pulled through the crown, again proving it empty. The crown is replaced on the stand and a large silk production commences, climaxed by the production of a bowl of water. Clever idea as designed by U.F. Grant and Jimmy King from a concept by Aldini. This early version may well be a prototype of what came later. Condition: Excellent.
