Seller: shabtishop (38) 100%, Location: Evesham, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 202548666793 For sale is an authentic faience ancient Egyptian ushabti. It dates from the Ptolemaic Period, 332 - 30 BC, and is guaranteed authentic. This ushabti is over 2,000 years old. The ushabti is 53mm in height. During the Ptolemaic period, the manufacture of ushabtis became rather mundane, and many very basic pieces were produced in large quantities, so as to be able to provide the required 400+ workers at a reasonably economical price! This is one such piece. Whilst this item may not be as pretty as many of the low-priced examples of ushabtiu (the correct plural) to be found on eBay, it is AUTHENTIC, which the overwhelming majority of the others are not! If you are looking to start a collection of GENUINE ancient Egyptian artefacts, this is your starting point. Simple items such as this are excellent study pieces which will help you to learn what real ancient Egyptian faience looks like, helping you to sort the good from the bad. For the avoidance of doubt: this is an authentic ancient Egyptian artefact, dating from the period stated. Be careful when buying antiquities on eBay, as almost all in the Ancient Egyptian category are fake. In particular, be aware that the sale of antiquities directly from Egypt would be a serious criminal offence under Egyptian law. You can be certain that any item offered for sale on eBay to be shipped directly from Egypt is a modern made item. The seller of this item offers twenty years of experience in the study of Egyptian artefacts and history and offers an unconditional lifetime guarantee of authenticity on all items sold, should a competent authority ever dispute the description of the item.
