Description

Of the many great images of the performance of magic we enjoy today, whether in the form of colorful lithograph posters, photographs or the artful design in fine apparatus and other statuary The Traveling Magician has no equal by its romantic and classic depiction of a bygone era. Not all that many exist from the time of its release some 133 years ago and the ones that do reside in collections as a centerpiece and a matter of pride in possession.

This particular Traveling Magician has special significance as it sat on display off to the side in the magnificent collection of David & Virginia Price, known all over the world as Egyptian Hall Museum with numbering label still affixed to the base at the back of the piece. The Traveling Magician is the work of John Rogers (1829-1904), painted, of plaster with a height of 23" with base dimensions 15 1/2" wide x 14 1/2" deep. Condition very fine.
