Palanquin was based on Servais LeRoy’s illusion “Stolen Jam.”1 In Palanquin, the magician can produce one or more people from an impossibly-small curtained cabinet.
The Palanquin in the photo was the original built by Gwynne in 1945 and decorated by Werner “Dorny” Dornfield.
In the first 45 seconds of this YouTube Video, you may view the basic palanquin illusion.
