Fran-Klint (c.1887 - c.1950) was a magician of Spanish origin (possibly Cuba) that performed cigarettes manipulation in London and other countries in Europe.[1]

Biography

He was one of the first gloved manipulators as well as one of the first to produce lit cigarettes in quantity. He billed himself as "The Gloved Man" and "The Original Gloved Manipulator." A young Cardini then only known as Richard Pitchford saw him when he came to London at a time he was working at the magic counter at a department store.[2]

He appeared for a season at Maskelyne's Egyptian Hall Theatre in London.
