I've been up for awhile now just doing random research, and I've fallen across The Marvelous Orange Tree by Robert-Houdin.
Is it possible to get this trick anywhere? I dont care at all about price.

Very rare and most are in private collections. I highly doubt you will find one for sale and if you do it will be up in the thousands easy. The tree itself is like clockwork and very complicated and precise. Not something you can come across any day.


As always,

Houdin's Orange Tree was an automata (machine, for lack of a better term). You will not find one for sale, as it is a rare and extremely valuable Collector's Item. You will find something similar, a Blooming Rose Bush...but it too will cost you around $15,000 Dollars.

Not to discourage your "price is no object" philosophy...you may wish to start here:

Blooming Bouquet
