On offer is a "Silver Wand" by The Magic Circle, made in September 1949 and presented to Henk Vermeyden during the Farewell Banquet of the International Magic Convention in Amsterdam in 1949, the first "FISM" convention, which had been organized by Vermeyden.

The Magic Circle had a few of these Silver Wands made for important artists and a couple have come up for auction in the recent past. One of these was to Cardini (made in the 1930s), but that one was missing the zodiac coin present in this one. Another one was donated to Channing Pollock a few years after the Vermeyden one. This one sold for $2,200 at one of the Potter & Potter auction.

A unique item marking an important phase of magic history, in a glass-fronted case.

Henk Vermeyden had been elected member of TMC in September 1948:

At the Council Meeting of 2 August 1949 the secretary of The Magic Circle (Arthur Ivey) recommended that a wand was given to Vermeyden:

At the end of the Congress, the president of the Magic Circle gave Vermeyden the wand:

This is the documentation on the wand: from the Magic Circular Vol. 43 #481 (Sep. 1949) and Vol. 44 #482 (Oct. 1949).

From the Henk Vermeyden Collection.
