Item Details
Description
Ancient Egypt, New Kingdom to Romano-Egyptian Period, ca. mid-16th century BCE to 2nd century CE. A lovely ensemble of 16 ancient Egyptian artefacts made from faience, glass, or stone. From the New Kingdom is a white steatite scarab features an image of Bes, a blue-green faience scarab with mirrored hieroglyphs, a black stone scarab with two enclosed circles, and two faience scarabs with faded linear and geometric motifs. From the Third Intermediate Period is a mold-formed faience mummiform ushabti covered in blue-green glaze. The Late Dynastic Period pieces include a faience scarab with 4 uraeus cobras, a beige faience scarab with a faded hieroglyph, a faience button depicting Bes, a faience inlay of Ra Horakhty, and a faience pendant of a standing ram. Last are 5 Romano-Egyptian glass beads, perhaps votive offering jars, with faceted side walls and nice iridescence. Size of largest (ushabti): 0.75" W x 2.25" H (1.9 cm x 5.7 cm)

Provenance: private Corpus Christi, Texas, USA estate collection, acquired 1960s to 1970s

Condition
Loss to feet of ushabti figure as shown, and one stable hairline fissure to one Romano-Egyptian glass bead; all other pieces are intact and very good. All pieces have abrasions and softening to finer details commensurate with age, with light encrustations on some pieces, and fading to glaze pigment on others. Great preservation to overall forms.
