Aladdin Magic Outfit
This is an old magic trick toy from 1919 passed on by JC recently featured in an online auction here:
from the auction:
Petrie & Lewis Mfg. Co., New Haven, ca. 1919. Magic set with elaborately lithographed cover, containing six tricks (four made of wood, including a Marble Vase and Grandmother's Necklace). Box measures 11 x 7 ½ x ½". Worn as expected and base of marble vase chipped, otherwise good condition. Jay Marshall worked for P&L assembling magic sets in the company's factory during the Christmas season, as well as demonstrating the effects over the counter at Abercrombie & Fitch in New York City.
