    Miniature figures historical. Location of events unknown.

    Bizarre series of tableaux of puppets or miniature figures; some dressed in 18th century type costumes; some look human others odd and gnome-like. Some in fancy dress; representing royalty or nobility. These little dolls are arranged in various settings; perhaps illustrating a story? Also a strange bit with a bunch of figures in white dresses or robes around a cauldron like witches; while in BG other little figures are seen through arches; whisking past! Tableau of servants in a kitchen Then a really weird stop-motion shot of 2 monsters- - like thick lumpy clay humans w/ misshapen heads- -grinding & pounding things; between them stands a small wizard/magician/sorcerer in a pointed hat; and facing him another human figure. Another tableau follows: some sort of village scene. Oddities; art; 1920's?
