Egg Bag is a small cloth sack used to produce or vanish small objects (like an egg). Small sacks, like hats, have been used as magic props since at least the 1500s.

One of the earliest methods for doing the Egg Bag can be found in Récréations mathématiques et physiques by Jacques Ozanam in the edition of 1723 entitled La Poule qui pond (The lark which lays) and the eggs are in your sleeve.


In The Whole Art of Legerdemain, or Hocus Pocus in Perfection by Henry Dean (1722) describes "How to show the Hen and Egg-bag, and out of an empty bag to bring out above an hundred eggs and afterwards to bring out a living Hen".

An Egg Bag was also described in Hoffmann's Modern Magic (1876).

On of the first gimmicked bags can be found in Codicile de Jérome Sharp by Henri Decremps (1788).

Around 1891, Herbert Albini created a small egg bag, the size most magicians know today.

Then, Charlie Miller revived the trick when he was living in Indianapolis with Harry Riser. He described what he thought would work and Margy (Riser's wife) made one[1]. Magic Inc. put in on the market, then Ken Brooke worked with Miller to create a routine.

Bag Variations:

  • Albini Egg Bag
  • Tarbell Egg Bag
  • Sachs Egg Bag
  • Miller / Malini Egg Bag
  • Sterling Egg Bag
  • Mesh Egg Bag
