Haversat & Ewing auction now LIVE

Haversat & Ewing Galleries latest magic auction is now LIVE. The auction features 28 Houdini-related lots, including a rare original 1902 Amsterdam prison break poster and a terrific original photo of Houdini with his dog Charlie.

The auction is made up of "over 220 choice lots cosigned by 20 of the nation's leading collectors including items from the late Ed Hill and Walter Gydesen."

Click here to view and bid on all the live auction lots. The auction ends October 17.

In other Houdini happenings today, author David Jaher will be giving an illustrated lecture on his new book The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in New York at 8PM. Full details here.

UPDATE: The 1902 Houdini lithograph topped out at $16,000, but failed to meet the reserve. The photo of Houdini and his dog Charlie fetched a very respectable $5,775.



  1. John--did you win anything on the H & E auction? I wanted one item--not HH--but the price plus the 17% fee was a bit too much.

    1. No, I didn't bid on anything. Would have loved the pic of HH and Charlie, but way too pricey.

  2. I won several items, some went at a fair price ....others.....well it's an auction. Don't have an issue with the 17%. Recently auction houses are collecting 20-27.5%, now that's to high! Doug
