    Two devices are demonstrated - one that stops the lid of a teapot falling off, the other a collapsible table.

  • Description

    No title.

    C/U of a cup of tea being poured. The lid of the teapot falls off as it is being tipped. "A little fitting we came across that removes that "lid-off" feeling - " C/U of a device that can be used to prevent the lid of the teapot falling off. It is a metal clasp which clips on to the teapot's handle.

    L/S of a woman pushing a large tea trolley through a doorway. She bends down and pulls the bottom shelf forward - it is a nifty contraption that converts into a table. The top shelf comes down and the bottom shelf goes up so that all three shelves make a flat table. Good invention! C/U of the woman pouring several cups of tea.

    Good 1920s gadgets.
