Summary
Pathe synopsis: From the intricate gadgets used in research to curios of principally ornamental value - part of an Aladdin’s cave that easily qualifies for the title of Britain’s most curious curiousity shop. Articles like flower holders in the shape of telephones, gold-plated mouse traps, jewelled flatirons for use as door stops and mink-handled toothbrushes are just some of the knick-knacks in this delightful setting.
