Lot 0239
The magician touches the top of his assistant’s head with a magic wand and suddenly a stream of water sprays high in the air from the top of the head. A featured effect in both Thurston’s and Dante’s “Fountania” water fountain acts. The maker and original owner of this apparatus are unknown. It is finely made with a curved tank that is filled with water and pressurized with a tire pump or compressed air. Rubber tubing connects the tank with the head piece and spray nozzle which may be concealed under a hat or wig. A clip on the tubing regulates the water flow. A rare find. Circa 1930. Condition: Very Good.
