Pit, Peter (Herman Claassen). Peter Pit’s Dancing Cane. Circa 1970. White-tipped walking stick which floated and danced about at the command of the magician, even spinning around his body. Wood, cork, cardboard, and metal construction. Breaks apart in three sections. 36” long (assembled). With the original plush carrying bag and hard travel tube/case and a photograph of Pit performing with the cane, and a LOA. The Dancing Cane was Pit’s signature trick, and such was his facility with it – the cane seemed to spin around and dance in a dizzying array of patterns and at light-speed – that on the strength of this effect alone he secured a booking on the Ed Sullivan Show. The performance changed the course of his career. Pit settled in California and became a staple at magic conventions worldwide, and at the Magic Castle, where he performed, served as entertainment director, and was a board member for decades.
Peter Pit’s Dancing Cane.
