This month we returned to the Showroom at Lyon and Turnbull, Edinburgh’s oldest auction house, to film with Specialist Douglas Girton who was joined by a Banjo Player, a Cymbal playing chimp and a Ballerina.  Automatons are mechanised figures from the turn of the century used at the time as curiosities and in retail displays.  A collection of these features in Lyon and Turnbull’s next auction and we were called in to help show off these quirky characters in film.
