Copy of original.

Two Metters' workers are busy enamelling a bath which is lying on its side in front of the furnace. Both workers have a shield in front of their face, heavy aprons and gloves. There is a hood with powerful lights above. The worker on the left is coating the bath with enamel powder by means of a long-handled sieve. The worker on the right is removing excess enamel power with a long-handled brush. Two large basins (containing enamel powder?) stand in the foreground (right) and there are several hoses to be seen in the foreground at the left.
