The Magician shows an empty Pan, and drops a piece of lit cloth or paper inside. The pan is covered, and when it it opened a live Dove or small Pigeon, or other similar live stock appears.
This is of course just one possible effect, as the Dove Pan is a classic Magic Prop and several routines and presentation ideas with this have appeared in magic books and magazines. You can use it to magically “Bake a Cake” or turn an egg into a chicken, and so on.
This is a large size dove pan (approximately 9″ in diameter, 6″ in height and a pan depth of 2.75″ ) manufactured in Spun mild steel model, powder coated in a metallic gray finish.
