Cannon Ball Vase. New York: Martinka & Co., ca. 1900. A small hare or quantity of objects vanish from a box, only to reappear in a nickel plated vase in which, only moments before, a solid cannon ball was placed. Wooden cannon ball, vase with mechanical finial and filigree-like ornament at rim. Ball diameter 5 ¾”. Height of vase 15 ½”. Minor wear to finish of ball, tiny dent to vase. Rare. A classic conjuring prop, rarely encountered, and perhaps one of the finest items Martinka offered. This, the large version, commanded the high price of $10 in the 1898 Martinka catalog.
