Mysto Magic Set (c.1950) Complete & Very Scarce Blue Box
One of the more difficult to find Mysto Magic sets circa 1950. What sets this one apart is it's complete and .....

No split corners on this one either and contents and all are in wonderful condition.....
A true gem of a Mysto set that is not easy to find. Price $ SOLD !

Mysto Magic Mailing Tube Premium Set (c.1920's)
Well look what we have here a real GEM of a find ! This is the larger tube set 6" tall by 4" diameter. I have had a few of the smaller tube sets and they each contained 3 tricks..... this larger tube has 7 so I would say it is complete !

Mysto Jacks, Vanishing Coin In Glass, Traveling Corks, New Chinese Rings and String, The Vanisher, Multiplying Balls and Ring On Coil ..... The tube has normal age related wear ... but complete and overall still in wonderful condition .... Tricks are in excellent condition and as stated ....
all have the instructions except the Ring & Coil . These larger tube sets are hard to find very very seldom do you ever find one if ever ! If you collect magic sets this piece could very well be the center piece of any magic set collection ... for sure an uncommon set to find available for sale ! Price $ SOLD !

Horsman Magic Outfit (c.1918)
Edward Imeson Horsman (E. I. Horsman) opened a toy company in New York City, New York in 1865 and became a leader in the toy industry. His company was mostly famous for it's line of dolls for girls. With this rare set Horsman tried going after the boy market.... What makes this set really special besides it's rarity is the tricks inside were manufactured by John Petrie of P&L Mfg. Co. These are the same effects Petrie made and used for the Aladdin Magic Outfit sets.
This rare beauty is 100% complete an only shows some normal age and wear mostly just paint wear to the Obedient Ball trick. The bottom section box is complete with even the aged tissue wrap (see fourth photo) and very sound. The tray insert is in great complete condition, box top label is superb, box top is still great with only one "closed" split corner. Some of the small painted wooden item's Mr. Petrie made for his sets seem to flake the paint but it is minor to this set. A really gorgeous set and most likely you will never find another in this outstanding condition. This set also has in my opinion probably the coolest label you will find on a set ! Superb, rare and very nearly 100 years old, ready for your antique magic collection. Some of the contents are Multiplying Billiard Balls, Magic Wand, Ball & Vase, Vanishing Ball, Handkerchief Vanisher, Coin Box etc. WOW .... this is truly a gem ! Price $SOLD !

Tenyo Party Magic Set (Tenyo Co. Ltd. c.1973)
Here we have a very desirable English version magic set from Tenyo circa 1973. A really hard to find set to say the least. It is complete less instruction booklet. The insert tray is pristine as you can see. The Time Capsule tube is cracked but still fully functional otherwise contents are mint and unused. I like this set a whole lot and kinda want to keep it and I very well may .....
