The Incredible Abbott Automatic Blooming Rosebush

Winning Bid: $975.00

One of the most incredible pieces to ever come out of the Abbott Factory.  It is the one of the  Holy Grails of Abbott items.

This is in wonderful condition working perfectly. It is a clockwork mechanism. I feel a working model of the Abbot Rosebush is more scarce the the P&L Model. I have purchased 5 P&L Rosebush’s in my life and this is the only Abbott I have ever been able to acquire. It comes with its own custom case and original instructions and key.. It is 25 inches tall. Circa 1940.

The original owner was Howard Mitchel of Los Angeles California. Howard was a magician but more famous as the builder and performer of Marionette Puppets and toured with his own stage and show. The provenance is the Howard Mitchel estate, to me, to  Ray and then back to me. Maybe you will be the next caretaker?

Estimate $1500-2000
