Pottery for sale was on display on shelves. There were these shelves, and two other sets of shelves on other walls. Thus the room was surrounded by pottery for sale.

The pottery was arranged almost at random. Different styles placed together on a shelf. To find a set, one had to wander the shop to find matching pieces. At the bottom-left was a ceramic turtle.

Bird Whistles

These bird whistles were just two of the many for sale. Blowing loosely so wind passed under the tail, causes the bird to whistle. Holes on either side of the body allowed the tone to be changed.
