    Item title reads - Fingers!

    Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.

    M/S as gates go back to show a lady in an oriental setting, she is wearing a heavily jewelled mask which obscures her face. C/U of her fingers which have long jewelled extensions on the end, and look quite lethal! M/S of a hand sketching on a pad, he attaches an extension to one of his fingers and continues to draw the face of a smiling man with it.

    Various shots of a lady using an extension to crochet. Another smoothes her eyelashes and eyebrows with one. M/S as someone sketches on black paper with the nail, then empties water over it, she uses a nail with feather on the end to smooth it out. M/S as a lady paints a picture with the nails and feathers. M/S of model hands showing them off.

    Note: The soundtrack to this item is missing.
