RARE PAINTED FOO CAN CIRCA 1930's.We've never seen the painted version IRL, and we could not find another for sale anywhere.From the estate collection of a retired professional magician and noted magic collector.
A Foo Can allows you to pour water into the can, the hold the can upside down and no water comes out.Until you want it to- then you can pour it from the can at your command.
The Abbott Magic Novelty Company was formed in late 1933 by Percy Abbott.Its most prosperous years spanned 1939-1953, under the guidance of Percy Abbott (through 1959) and then Recil Bordner (until his death in 1981) and then Recil's son, Greg Bordner.Abbott's is still in business today.
This Foo Can has the trademark deep red color that early Abbott's equipment was known for.Well used, there are a lot of paint chips, dents and dings, as you can see in the photos.Still works like a charm, though!
CONDITION: fair to good. Many paint chips, dents and dings. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS.Made of painted tin.Measures about 8" high and 3" across top.
