An 11-Bloom Rose Bush Automaton. England: Granville Taylor (Faust), ca. 2010. All-brass faux rose bush resting in a handsome wooden pot that slowly blooms real roses on command, which may then be cut from the plant and presented to the spectators as keepsakes of the performance. Wind-up clockwork mechanism concealed in the hardwood pot fabricated from a modified gramophone motor. A few leaves bent and with minor chips to finish, but overall, very good working condition. Height 36” With original wooden “scrimmed” packing case. VIEW VIDEO
