Billy McComb’s Bird Cage for Sale

Own a piece of magic history!

As much as I hate to part with anything of Billy McComb’s, I have decided that I am never going to do it, and I don’t have any place to display it so I should let it go to someone who will perform it, or to someone who does have a place to display it.

This cage is a polished Encore Vanishing Bird Cage, one of the first made. It was sent directly to McComb from the maker, Christopher Reesman, and the original shipping box labeled to Billy’s address and hand written notes by Billy McComb in blue marker.

Also included is the brass box that folded flat for carrying. This is the prototype, sent to Billy for approval for the Encore set. The box enables the performer to hook the cage from behind the box and then lift it up to show the audience. We also include the two wonderful DVDs put out by Encore with the set that teach everything about the history, handling and psychology of Billy’s most well-known routine. No pull.

The cage, brass box and 2 DVDs are $1500.

Nevertheless, my companions and I love it here and just like everyone else we are just trying to get by in this exciting and progressive era. With a variety show of steampunk-oriented magic, comedy and music, Pop's company entertains and sells a few bottles of Amazing Miracle Oil, Wonder Elixer, or Magnetized Water.
