Anyone know where this video resides now? Evidently it expired or got pulled. I searched YT

No idea. But your timing is nice. I was bsking a dozen loaves (Dan Leader's Genzano) and as I was loading the oven, quickly so as to not lose heat, I was reminded of that video and a comment someone made about how those two sisters were in no such hurry. They loaded their oven and seemed to take their time about it.

Strange shape too... Not much of a dome... there is a bit of a curve there...
but the roof almost looks flat...

It's hard to tell how it all fits together from the limited amount of shots there are.

Chimney looks like an after thought. lol.

To me the oven appears to have a very high dome, based on the curvature of the walls that are visible in most of the oven shots. Additionally, the size of the oven opening is very tall, yet it still does not reveal the top of the dome.

There is no vent and chimney, true...but this is how most early ovens were built. It doesn't appear to be a problem for them that's for sure!

I think you are counting the courses on the oven opening...if you look at the interior, the dome is springing off the first course ( @2:24 you can pause the vid and see) as per usual. The oven does not appear to have been tuck pointed on the interior either, and lots of open, expanded joints suggest little or poor insulation...a mass based oven..again, very typical of how it has been done for household ovens over the centuries.

As can be clearly seen, while the oven itself would not be considered to be built with best practice in mind, but it is quite functional and useful to the household...simplicity and utility being the objective of it's construction.

I personally feel that an oven like this embodies the true spirit of WFO usage.
