Lot 0143
From the act of the famed female magician, this box was built by her husband, Swiss juggler, Charles Carrer. Heavy-duty box trimmed in ribbed metal with a paper-covered front door is shown empty (and in the night clubs where O’Dell appeared, would be carried by the handle on top around to the ringside tables to let those patrons see the empty box up-close.) The front door is closed and the box placed on an unprepared stand (not included. Use any table.) When the lid is lifted, all four sides fall away and one or two large rabbits appear. This box is “built like a tank” to endure O’Dell’s legendary rough-and-tumble handling, yet is precision engineered throughout. Certainly unique. Circa 1940. Condition: Overall Excellent, except for some wear to the mirror inside (could be replaced.) A rare performance item from “The Queen of Magic.” Includes original 8” x 10” autographed photo of Dell O’Dell with her rabbits.
