18: Coin Ladder. American, ca. 1920.
Coin Ladder. American, ca. 1920. As the magician catches coins in the air he drops them in to the hat resting on top of this unusual prop. At his command, the coins penetrate the hat and cascade down the ladder, bouncing back and forth between the pegs on its face, falling into a receptacle below. Patterned after the ladder used by T. Nelson Downs and described in his 1909 book, The Art of Magic. 35 ½” tall. Plate missing from plunger (easily replaced), one small crack at base of front board; good condition overall.
