Kiln

This is a bottle kiln design, imported from England in the 1860s to make pottery. Originally, there were about 30 of these kilns in Sarreguemines, but by the turn of the 20th century the design passed out of use and this is the only one remaining in Continental Europe. They continued to use bottle kilns in the Potteries area of England until the 1960s. So, more can be found there.

  7. Gosh, it looks big enough to roast an entire elephant in. Not that I'd like to roast one, mind you…
