Description: Birmingham: Moody Bros., ca. 1925. A central bust portrait of the famous Italian magician fills the middle of the large and visually arresting poster, with a montage of Egyptian imagery on one side and an all-seeing eye looking down on a devil, magician, ghosts and skeletons on the other. Chefalo holds a monocle in his glove-clad hand. 60 x 116". Wear at intersection of sheets and old folds, one corner inexpertly restored; B. Rare. Many of the images filling this large poster were borrowed by the printer, Moody Brothers, from the artwork created by the firm for other magicians, including Rameses, Chung Ling Soo, and Ionia.
