Our Price: £0.00

SOLD

Late Dynastic - Ptolemaic period c.300-100 B.C. A small but pleasantly detailed and attractive Ancient Egyptian turquoise glazed faience "Ushabti" figure depicted in standard Mummiform poise with arms crossed. The term "Ushabti" translates as "Answerer" as many of these miniature servant figures were placed by mourners into tombs in the belief that they would magicly animate and undertake the every day chores for the deceased in the after-life. Attractive colouration with good glaze. From an old West Country collection. Intact and in very nice condition, an appealing example, 60mm tall x 19mm across shoulders
