Object statement
Costume, magician's tail coat with secret pockets, silk/velvet/cotton, Jandaschewsky family, [Australia], 1900-1960
Possibly made in Australia. Shows evidence of repair

It probably dates from the family's time in Australia and their move away from circus to vaudeville.
Used by Arthur Jandaschewsky for his magic tricks act. This may have been worn by him throughout his career.
The Jandaschewsky family collection was kept together by the last remaining family member, Arthur 'Jandy' Jandaschewsky. During the last years of his life 'Jandy' sold the collection to his friend John Anastasiadis. Mr Anastasiadis kept the collection for a 25 year period, having built a repository for housing and exhibiting it at his own home. In 1994 he sold the collection to the MAAS in order to keep it together, and in New South Wales, according to 'Jandy's' wishes.

Description
Costume, magician's tail coat with secret pockets, silk/velvet/cotton, Jandaschewsky family, [Australia], 1900-1960
Costume, magician's tail coat made of black silk and lined with aubergine cotton originally with 4 buttons (only 3 remain). The wearer's right sleeve is shorter than the right, probably due to a trick compartment/pocket. The left sleeve has a tattered red silk handkerchief attached to the inside with plastic fishing wire. Inside the front flaps of the jacket are several 'secret' pockets of velvet, cotton and silk, from one (near armhole) an orange tube emerges. The collar is a 'bal' or convertible style and is very worn. There are two black buttons at centre back. Jacket has been repaired by hand under the arms and in various other areas. General appearance is worn and tattered.
