Bercelini (April 2, 1892 - ? ), born H. van Berkel in Holland, made his debut as a conjurer in 1908 and during the World War he gave 600 performances in the camps of the Dutch army.

Bercelini has invented a number of tricks and illusions, among them being the "Hovering Vase."

Together with his wife, he presented a Second Sight act. His two children, Leonie and Mary, were also billed as "thought readers." [1]

There was also an IBM member #1485 Johannes Corneli van Berkel, (The Great Bercelini) from Holland listed in the the Linking Ring Vol. 06 (May 1927) issue.
