  • Description

    Brighton, East Sussex.

    Bill Axle (sp?) the "glass animal man" is seen in C/U blowing glass. Various shots of him moulding and shaping melted glass into cute glass ornaments. "It is more than just a hobby with Bill" states the narrator, there is a world-wide demand for his little figurines. Various results of Bill's work are seen. These include glass flowers, earrings featuring tiny Siamese cats, glass dogs chasing glass cats, elephants holding hands etc.

    Cute or revolting depending on your taste.

    Note: there is no paperwork to confirm the spelling of Bill's surname - Axle, Axel ?

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
