Manual Catalogues - Bell's List of Illustrations entry: "[No. of chapter] XXIV. [Subject of Chapter] Food and Drink [Subject of Illustration] Q83 (f) Kitchen utensils (i) teapots (ii) Tea urn (iii) Water-bucket in house in Chumbi valley."
Other Information - Related Images: Bell does not distinguish in his List of Illustrations entry between 1998.286.93.1 and 1998.286.93.2 and both may be referenced by his caption for Q.83. 1998.286.2 is a copy of the other image, but with numbers added to it, which relate to the utensils referenced in Bell's caption [MS 9/8/2004]
Technical Information - The copy image [1998.286.93.2] has had numbers added to it. These appear to have been written on the print that was being re-photographed, rather than having been scratched on the negative. This suggests that at least two copies of this image were made and that one print was marked up and then re-photographed to create the negative [MS 9/8/2004]
Contemporary Publication - Published in 'The People of Tibet', Bell, C. A., Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1928, facing p.236:"Kitchen utensils. Left, saucepans and teapots; right centre, wooden tea churn and dasher; water bucket on right." [MS 10/9/2004]
