Seller: 2426_shaw (1,059) 100%, Location: Preston, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 173705046644 From a private home being the ancestors of the recipient of this shabti which was a gift from the head of the museum in Cairo ,a M MESPERO,interesting that they knew him as M MESPERO as he used this ruse as people then asked for his father as he was assumed by many to appear to young to be the famous Egyptologist.Reading the letter which comes with it ,the failure of the Oriental Bank is mentioned so we can assume a date of approx 1884.The shabti has always been known in the tin box photographed but I am unable to read the inscription to see if they in fact belong together.Photographed are the interesting pages of the letter which relate to the gift being given.On 24-Dec-18 at 19:32:45 GMT, seller added the following information: The Shabti is 10 x 4 cm. Letter written 1884.
