ca1910 possibly sold through Martinka. All metal base and upright with a wooden top and the original purple felt top. The silk is loaded into the larger area near the top and a sliding plunger pushed the silk into the Bottomless Glass (provided).
This has the original gold paint from that era and has not been refurbished at all. It has all the Patina you'd expect and works like a charm.
A great find if you collect antique magic or love Silk Pedestals. A fantastic piece of apparatus you most likely won't see any day soon, if at all!
NOTE: LACKS INSTRUCTIONS
CONDITION: Original condition as found in the old Magic Shop. FN or better!
