First you get a ruler...

OK. It just occurred to me that's not your pan or your hand.

I'd guess it's about 8" in diameter at the top, 6" at the bottom and maybe 5" deep.

Tarte Tatin pans usually run under 2 inches deep and 8 to 11 inches in diameter. The shallow depth makes it easier to flip the baked tarte without breaking the crust.

I think you may have an issue trying to cook the apples interior of the pot. But the time the heat worked it's way in to the center, the exterior may be overdone.

looks to me, about 5" across and 3" deep and copper coated for even heat distribution.

Do you know if the hands in the photo are a man's hands or a woman's hands? Would give a better idea of scale to know.

TL,
The way I came up with an estimate was, thinking the rivets are 1" apart.

The windsors I have are all about the same in proportions regardless of the size.

To me the pot looks like a Mauviel tin lined M250. Assuming my hand size is similar to the one in the photos it would be 9.5 top, 3.5 deep and about 8 at the bottom. All exterior dimensions.
