David Devant is probably best known for the production of multiple eggs in relatively modern times (in the last century). Fawkes, too, produces many eggs from his--much larger than the Malini/Miller--bag.
There are illustrations extant predating Isaac Fawkes by at about two centuries, showing magicians (jugglers, in the native languages, way back then) with bags on their performing tables, and what might well be an egg.
Early Tarot cards show Le Bauteleur (The Juggler) performing with a bag on the table. One is likely his prop bag, or Gibeciere--though not worn on the belt and used as a repository for cup and ball loads, as normally seen is such images--and another, smaller bag (or cup) appears to have two compartments on one illustration.
In the earliest known Tarot deck, the performer is pointing to what appears to be a bag, the latter's use, however, we can only guess. See:
and finally, this image shows the performer with what appear to be eggs and either a hat or a bag shaped like a hat (likely the latter, in my opinion, as the hat the performer is wearing was more likely the style of the period):

Here you can see images inspired by or created for the Tarot showing the performer with both gibiciere and a bag on the table.
