Description
Quibell p.8: The kitchen from the top of the coffin was next taken out. The model was about 76 cm. long; the side walls remain, the floor had gone but its thickness (4cm.) could still be seen as the layers of blue paint remained in place. At one end was a man holding a tray, in the middle another roasting a goose and in a corner the scene of the slaughter of an ox. When this object was moved, several small pieces, presumably belonging to it, were found on the coffin lid below, - - two figures of girls and two ovens, one a plain cylinder of wood, painted blue with horizontal red lines, another of the beehive shape.
[NB. this object was obviously in terminal decay]
