  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Titania's famous Palace, the wonderful creation of Sir Nevile Wilkinson, K.C.V.O. is back in London after its tour abroad in aid of crippled children. (It has taken over 25 years to create." (shot missing).

    "There are over 4000 pieces in the sixteen rooms of the Palace - each a gem in its class." C/U of one of the rooms which is full of tiny pieces of furniture. Other rooms are shown. C/Us of some of the pieces of furniture. "And these are over 3000 years old!" (shot missing). "A perfect miniature clock, in perfect order over four centuries old." (shot missing?). M/S of Sir Nevile Wilkinson speaking to camera. Sound section. He talks of who has made some of the miniature items. He describes a miniature canon and we see it in C/U. He seems to be giving a lecture on antique miniatures. He shows the camera an old miniature vase and bowl, both at least 2000 years old. He shows a miniature chalice and miniature clock.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review 527.

    Note: very rare sound item from Eve's Film Review. Shots are probably out of order. There are other films in the EP collection featuring this dolls house.
