Seller: bob4676 (3,501) 99.1%, Location: Spicewood, Texas, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 372388190395 kk Lot of FOUR (4) VINTAGE 1930s/40s SOLID BRASS HAND PAINTED MINIATURE EGYPTIAN MUSICIAN FIGURINES Unique gift idea! Estate Sale Find! Each figure is approx. 1-3/4" tall on brass plate 2-3/8" x 1/2" These compelling little figures came from the estate of a missionary who spent a lot of the 1930s and 1940s in Egypt. I have not seen another set of these, or anything similar to them. As an anthropologist, I am certain they are from Egypt. These figures look like musicians carrying drum and wind instruments... perhaps as part of some kind of procession. I find the brass plates interesting... each figure is one piece... the brass plate and figure are one piece of upside-down poured, cast brass... If you have seen these before, and know their function and/or history, please send me a message! Basing the starting price more on age and interest than rarety!
