Haversat and Ewing Gallery Fall Auction

Wonderful Treasures Coming to Auction

On November 8-9, 2019, Haversat and Ewing Galleries’ auction will feature items from the collection of Lewis Davenport & Company of London.

The Davenport family has a long and rich history of operating one of the oldest and most successful magic shops in the world. The Davenport family also owns and preserves one of the great collections of conjuring artifacts. One such piece is the Houdini portrait below. 

 
The original portrait was presented by Houdini himself to the Magicians’ Club of London. The club was formed in 1911 by Harry Houdini, Will Goldston, and Servais Le Roy along with other notable names in magic. In fact, Houdini appeared alongside Lewis Davenport at the club’s annual dinner at the Savoy Hotel, London, on 8th February 1920. 
 
And, this is just one of the 236 incredible lots coming to auction in just a few days. The auction catalog is now live
 
Good luck to all bidders!
