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 several live Doves or Pigeons or chicken or ducklings, a small Duck or Rabbit, or other similar live stock appears.
This is of course just one possible effect, as the original 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 duck, and so on.
The Duck Pan is a super size version of the Dove Pan, with a load capacity about 12″ in diameter, and 4″ high. We have 2 different models, one made of Seamless Spun Aluminum, without base, anodized in a gleaming silver finish (they are lighter, and rust proof, and a bit more expensive than the mild steel model), and a spun mild steel model, powder coated in a metallic gray finish, which is heavier but more economical than the Aluminum models.
