Lot 0011
Levitation Automaton. Paris: Roullet & Decamps, 1920s. Large and impressive automaton in the form of a tuxedo-clad magician standing behind a trestle-supported fabric-covered table. The magicianÂ’s assistant rests atop the table, covered by a fringed satin sheet. When the mechanism is activated, the woman floats up into the air, and the conjurer passes his hoop over her levitating body, as if to prove there is no connection between her body and the table or stage below it. Composition heads and hands, with finely made costumes. The entire device standing on a handsome hardwood base. Motor-driven electric mechanism. Working. Height 28 ½”. VIEW VIDEO
