Taxidermy Freak : Double Daisy the Two-Headed Cow
a Victorian 2 headed calf presented in a large glazed wooden case. She was calved in 1875 in Sutton Montis, Somerset. Her early life was with a travelling fairground freak show. The case used to have a pair of doors on the front to protect the glass whilst travelling, and to protect the ladies from fainting! When the show ceased travelling, she was bought by a private museum and some years later transferred to the Rural Life Museum at Cricket St Thomas, Somerset, where she resided for over ten years. When the museum closed in 1990, she was purchased by the present vendors. In excellent condition and an exceptionally rare opportunity. We sold this for £1300 in March 2012; unfortunately the wife of the Gentleman buyer would not let him bring it into the house and so he has reluctantly had to offer it up for sale again.

Folding Magician's Performance Table
A Jack Hughes original (with a plethora of tricks, cards, instruction sheets mostly, thrown in for free) from Harry Stanley's 'Unique Magic Studio' in the 1960s. This belonged to the famous automata collector Jack Donovan, he used to do a magic act and was a good friend of Simon Drake. Jack gave Simon his extensive collection of magic apparatus a year before he died which includes running orders of his act! The table is in good condition (handle has some wear) but most of the tricks are pretty shabby but a fascinating cornucopia nevertheless and a real slice of magic history from 1950s and 60s.
