Egg, lemon, walnut, Paul's ring - magic on Letterman

Things disappear and go to unexpected places.
The "Millionaire's Magician" Steve Cohen performs magic on David Letterman's Close-up Magic Week.

The magic he's doing is based on an old stage trick called Orange, Lemon, Egg, Canary. It also has elements of magician Robert Houdin's illusion, invented in 1845, called The Marvelous Orange Tree, which begins with an egg, a lemon, and an orange and uses a skillful robotic automaton. (See a modern tabletop version of Robert-Houdin's trick here>>)
