Seller: 3501kenr (151) 100%, Location: Edgewater, Maryland, Ships to: US, Item: 223837452643 Ancient Egyptian open work gilt pectoral depicting the four sons of Horus and two goddesses (placed on a mummy's torso) A bold column of raised golden hieroglyphics (as yet untranslated), runs down the center. For some reason it is made up of several pieces - it may have broken up over the centuries - but these have been put back together as well as possible by myself (the left side is made up of a similar piece that replaced a missing one). Under the right lighting it radiates gold and the glyphs jump back to life. I have a larger example of this style of pectoral, and that is the reason I'm letting this one go. Study the photographs, undoubtedly the pieces shown can be remounted and made near perfect. The piece will be shipped in the frame. Dates from the late period. At present I am doing some serious weeding of my Egyptian collection. As any current Ancient Egyptian artifact collector knows, provenance is everything when trying to trade with a dealer, or sell in a specialty (antiquities), auction. With that said ebay is the only option left for old collectors to bring these (for sale) pieces to a wide audience. As any serious collector will see, the pieces I have listed are priced to sell, and there are some collectors that are going to walk away with some wonderful deal and pieces. If you don't like what you received, send it back, I'll take it no problem for you probably got it for far less than its worth. These items come from a collection that was established many years ago. Sorry - United States only - I don't want to deal with getting antiquities through foreign customs...Good Luck. Material: Cartonnage/gilt, Provenance: Egypt
