Description

(Notice: I have included the gimmicked ice pick as a free bonus.)

This is a real beauty from P&L. It is not too bulky like others I have seen, and really looks like a vintage funnel and works perfectly with water flowing on demand. These were originally issued c. 1937 in nickel silver  (sometimes called Cupro Silverclick here for a discussion) and only later c. 1958 released in copper.

If you add a gimmicked ice pick you can “puncture” the boys arm before you start the pumping action!

Effect: A great comedy effect. Performer causes a glass of water to vanish, now procures the assistance of a boy, and placing the funnel to his elbow, holds a tumbler underneath. Now, working the boy’s arm up and down like a pump handle, immediately water pours from funnel into glass.

Stage size holds full glass of water. Made throughout of copper. Improved construction. It is acknowledged to be the finest funnel ever placed on the market.

(Notice: Includes: Printed Instructions.)
