Joe Fox has really gone the extra mile and provided me with some great photos of MORE Houdini Busts. Just when you thought you'd seen them all, a few more pop up!
Next, we have an unusual bust that Joe Fox can't recall where he got it. But it's clearly Houdini
appears maybe to be a copy of a copy because some of the details are
less visible on this particular bust. Though it could just be the white
color, which makes it look like a white chocolate bust of
Houdini......(that sounds rather cool).
Frank, the magician and historian offered this Houdini bust a few years
ago. It's 9 1/4 inches tall and weighs approx 5 lbs. It was limited to
200 pieces and the ad for the bust mentions it was the first in a series
of magic busts. But I don't know if any others were created.
The final two don't actually fit into the category of BUST. But they are statues of Houdini. The first
The final 'statue' was done by sculptor Mo Flint. His statue of Houdini in a Straightjacket is incredibly
and looks 100% like Houdini. I had contacted Mo when these were first
announced and he was hoping to do other Houdini statues if these sold
well. But I think the sale of these statues was a little disappointing.
From what I've heard, the run was supposed to be 500 but only 250 were
ever made. No other magic or Houdini statue followed.
*Special Thanks to Houdini Historian and all around great guy, Joe Fox, for sharing the above images from his collection!
