Description

A potter sitting on a three-legged stool is shaping a tall pot, using a large (1.40 m diameter[1] according to the author) spoked wooden wheel whose lower part is lodged below the floor level of the workshop and which is operated by two boys equipped with long sticks.

The caption reads in the original French: Tournette du potier, ou roue à modeler les pièces de grande dimension.
