Cortini (Paul Korth). Cortini’s Coin-Shooting Miser’s Dream Pail. Circa 1930. Fancy hammered metal champagne bucket with internal mechanism that shoots a seemingly endless stream of coins from inside in a circular pattern. Owned and used by Cortini, who made a spectacle of the Miser’s Dream, an effect in which he produced coins from mid-air. Height 8 ¼”. Apparently in good working condition. Believed to be unique.At the conclusion of Cortini’s Miser’s Dream routine, a variety of champagne buckets nearly identical to this example, resting on metal stands on his stage, filled to overflowing of their own accord, while a backdrop made up of glittering coins dropped from the flies, and two buckets at either side of the stage launched lightweight aluminum coins into the air. This is one of the specially constructed pails used in this spectacular act.
