Bird Decapitation Gimmicks. Circa 1920. Set of faux white and black bird heads with glass eyes for the ancient feat of decapitating pigeons and restoring them to life with differently-colored heads. Each approximately 1 ¾” high. The effect of swapping the heads of two decapitated animals dates – by some accounts – to the times of the Pharaohs. In modern times, the trick was a popular favorite in the shows of Imro Fox, Servais Le Roy (performed by Bosco), and even David Copperfield.
