Frikell Palm

This thumb-palm variant is described in Hoffmann's Modern Magic, 1876, p. 149, “Pass 2”. There it is said to have been “a special favourite of the elder Frikell.” This suggests association rather than invention, and that is a likely assumption. The palm is also described by Robert Hellis in his 1873 notebook. See Hellis in Wonderland, 2010, p. 43.
