Carl Willmann (also spelled Karl) (1849-1934) was a very well known German manufacturer of magical apparatus and writer in Hamburg. He established his mechanical workshop for making magical apparatus, automatons, and illusions in 1872.
He retired from the business in 1914, turning it over to his son John. It was eventually taken over by Janos Bartl (with John as a partner).
The families long connection with magic continued with Walter Willman (in Chicago).
