Houdini-Owned Bean Giant Handcuffs.
Item Details
Description
Houdini, Harry (Ehrich Weisz). Houdini-Owned Bean Giant Handcuffs. Nickel-plated “escape proof” handcuffs with original key. 6 ¼” wide. Minor wear to plating. Lot 204 from the Radner/Mueller Great Houdini Auction. Sold with a COA signed by Radner, handsomely framed with the catalog description. The configuration of Bean’s cuffs made it nearly impossible for a key to be inserted by the restrainee. Even so, Houdini escaped from a set early in his career, helping secure his reputation as the true king of escape artists. He would later used Bean Giants to challenge other supposed handcuff “kings.”
