Haversat & Ewing Galleries March auction

Haversat & Ewing Galleries’ next auction takes place March 7-14 and promises a nice mix of unique, rare and collectible items.

Topping the list is the original apparatus for Ade and True Duval’s Rhapsody in Silk. They debuted it at the 1928 I.B.M. convention and then toured with it coast-to-coast for the next five years. They performed it at the Palace Theater in New York, Radio City Music Hall (four times), The Palladium in London, The Wintergarten in Berlin, and many other places. Duval retired the act in 1939, and put the equipment away. Now it’s offered for sale to the discerning collector.

Another highlight is the rare Ramsey’s poster illustrated above. A one-of-a-kind handmade Society of Osiris program honoring Thurston on the 25th anniversary of taking over Kellar’s show will also be offered.

Consignments have been made from all over the country reflecting all the genres of magic. This auction features quite a bit of equipment, posters, paper ephemera, Houdini letters and a signed photograph, one of the coins Fred Kaps used in his Treasure Chest Miser’s Dream act and much more.

Items may be viewed in advance beginning March 2 at Lots will be open for bidding March 7-14.
