Quibell, Excavations at Saqqara (1906-1907), p. 76 and Pl. XIX, 4
Quibell-1908Quibell does not mention XIX: 4 in the text, and in the description of plates just saya "Another potter". However on p. 10 he says "To the right, (north ) of this [the model of Karenen being entertained by musicians], was a potter's workshop and to the right of it again the most complete of the carpenter's shops (pi. XVIl, 4)." This seems the most likely candidate for XIX:4.
