BEVERLY, Mass. – Kaminski Auctions will sell Part Two of Le Grand David and his Spectacular Magic Company’s collection of props, original artwork, paintings, memorabilia and magic illusions on April 10.

The unique and intriguing contents of the Larcom Theatre and a number of pieces from the company’s performances at the Cabot Street Cinema Theatre will be of interest for local fans, magic collectors and illusionists alike.

The first auction held on Feb. 23, 2014 was a huge success as magicians and collectors filled the Cabot Street Cinema Theatre to bid and own a piece of magic history. Magic followers from all over the world registered for the auction, including locations as far away as Malaysia, Finland and Argentina.

Absentee and Internet live bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers.com.

This resident company of magical performers amazed and entertained audiences of all ages with its two renowned stage magic extravaganzas, performed for over 35 consecutive years. Each performance sparkled with classic illusions of stage magic, dozens of elaborate backdrops and curtains, hundreds of stunning costumes, beautiful choreography and lovely classical music.

As with the previous Le Grand David auction, magicians, collectors and the public will have the opportunity to bid on original works of art, magical illusions, costumes, collections of books and programs, hand-painted Larcom Theatre backdrops, and handsome theater furnishings.

Top lots include a one-of-a-kind Tip Over Trunk (above) performed with the DeKolta Chair illusion as the breathtaking conclusion of the Larcom show, exquisitely painted with geisha scenes on the sides, lid, front and back; the unique, hand-crafted Larcom table with two botanias used in Marco’s front curtain routine; the Sword Box, another one-of-a-kind illusions created in the company’s workshops; and several Rick Heath hand-painted backdrops and original artwork posters.
