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.

In 1895 he established the first German-language monthly magic periodical Die Zauberwelt. His son John Willmann soon joined him in the business.

Theo Bamberg was his agent in the United States for selling his goods. With Theo, he invented the Fall-apart Box (around 1908).

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).[1]
