An Egyptian Blue-Glazed Faience Shabti For Imintet
Shown mummiform with details in black pigment, wearing a tripartite wig, the crossed arms with clenched hands each holding agricultural tools for work in the afterlife, an vertical column of text at the front reads: "The Osiris Imintet, true of voice." 10.16cm (4"H).
PROVENANCE: Ex-private collection of Dr. Benson Harer, acquired at auction in 1991 after deaccession from a Maryland museum.
(there is a reserve on this lot)
Re-joined at the neck and glued to the base so difficult to determine if the feet are missing, therefore priced on the assumption the piece is incomplete, good original deposits, translation on the wood base together with old catalogue numbers. Custom mounted.
