$75 in 1949 was an awful lot of money, butterflies or not.


According to the Inflation Calculator:

Not an awful lot of money to pay today for the effect!

This of course does not look so visual as there is a conical cover. The growth is not visual (as we saw in the film!), and no mention of butterflies! Talking of butterflies, although not common, performers should be sensitive to sufferers of "lepidopteraphobia" ... how could anyone be frightened of a butterfly?

Mr. Hughes, any news on the production of this item?
Yours Magically,

Before Robert Houdin (1805-1871) another magician Isaac Fawkes (1675-1731) had the Growing Apple Tree illusion. Smile
