Cecil Lyle The Magical Milliner. London ca. 1930
Item Details
Description
Lyle, Cecil. Cecil Lyle The Magical Milliner. London and Belfast, David Allen & Sons, ca. 1930. Half-sheet (20 x 30") one-color lithograph depicting a large bust portrait of The Magical Milliner (and inventor of the paper hat trick) modeled after a photograph by Claude Harris. Some discoloration and toning; fold lines apparent. Fair condition. Linen backed. Lyle toured England with a gigantic illusion show that featured many classic feats, among them routines and illusions developed by Arnold DeBierre and David Devant. And though Lyle's Cavalcade of Mystery show was known as a stage-filling spectacle, it was his intimate feat with sheets of tissue paper — two pieces were torn, then restored in the form of a paper hat — that made his reputation and gave him the moniker of "The Magical Milliner."
