Very early D&D had a potion of Wishing. It actually may have been an Oil and/or a powder.

Anyway, on that basis a Potion of Great Wish is conceivable and while the 200 hours would be a problem in most cases a successful Perpetual Awaken Machine could probably handle it..

Incidentally, I have seen Resurrection cast in game though Great wish ahs only been done off-screen.

Note that I am not advocating for either scc's "Potion" mechanics or the Perpetual Awaken Machine. I think a more conventional Enchantment process and costs would avoid issues that both have. In particular the "putting energy into it by the hour" thing which is how many people have wished their characters could do Enchantments but which has never been legal RAW.
