Our second sale from Ken Klosterman's world famous collection of magicana, The Salon de Magie, is slated for March 26, 2022.
Drawing on the vast archive assembled over the course of a 50+ year collecting career, this auction will bring rare posters - from the careers of Houdini, LeRoy, and Kellar - together with choice vintage apparatus, ephemera, and relics from the great "golden age" magic shows of yesteryear. Highlights include stage illusions from the shows of Alexander, Birch, and Kassner, props owned by Harry Houdini, F.E. Powell, and Dante, memorabilia from the career of Karl Germain, and a bespoke magic apparatus from the workshops of Okito, Thayer, Martinka, and their contemporaries.
Deluxe clothbound catalogs - printed in limited quantities - are now available.
