  1. Greetings,

    It looks like there are some tankards? on the top center shelf behind the workers…maybe not. If so…it looks like one has a lid that is standing up? (Like a flagon?) Or is it a spoon sitting in it?

    Great image!

  2. I would venture that this is more of a copper / redsmith shop judging from the tools and the items being made. the worker is raising the sides on a pot or such, that would most likely not be tin.
