Egyptian Faience Lot. Second Intermdiate to Late Periods, c. 1650 -330 BC. Ushabti height: 4-3/8". An attractive strand of "mummy beads" comprised of tiny discs from various dynasties glazed primarily in blues and greens, but also with fine, bright whites, reds, yellows, sienna, and dark brown. The main necklace is made up of five strands, the ends with catches are singles. Also, a Late Dynastic ushabti, c. 400-330 BC, in bluish gray-green. This sepulcheral servant of typical mummiform shape. Along the front of the body is a rectangular panel with hieroglyphs, but these are not legible because of infilling by the thick glaze. Beads perfect; the ushabti is intact and very fine, although glaze now matte.
Estimated Value $300 - 400.
