Antiques (1954)

Isleworth, Middlesex. In the grounds of Syon House we see various shots of antiques that are stored, restored and cleaned there by brothers Bert and Alf Crowther. Among the articles seen are a pub sign and 16th century frontage of ’The White Hart’ coaching inn, several statues and Doric columns. A couple walk around, looking at the artefacts. Italian stonemason Signor Togmozzi works to restore stonework of a model owl; he is wearing a paper hat. Two men work to restore a fireplace. A statue is wheeled on a trolley to a van and loaded aboard. Notes and cutting on file. FILM ID: A VIDEO FROM BRITISH PATHÉ. EXPLORE OUR ONLINE CHANNEL, BRITISH PATHÉ TV.
