Are you referring to Petrie - Lewis magic? They would be better known as P&L.

I have a rather extensive collection of P&L, including both of the catalogs (1939 and 195?) and am not aware of P&L ever producing/marketing a snake basket. It is not mentioned in either of their catalogs, nor the any mention of such an effect in The P&L Book by Barbi Walker and Robert Seaver. While I am aware of, and have in my collection, a couple of items made by P&L that are not mentioned in either their catalogs or the Barbi/Seaver book, a snake basket is so unlike any of their other products that I find it hard to imagine it being from P&L. Petreey sounds almost like someone's attempt to sell something that the uninitiated might assume was a Petrie or P&L product.
