During the Coronavirus pandemic I am unable to post anything right away other than very small things like scarabs, amulets, rings and a few other smaller items. 

Also I'm not going online much and if you send me an email I may not be able to reply for a while .

Stay safe!

This is a fragmentary Middle Kingdom wooden piece, an offering basket which would have been held by a large wooden figure.
There is still one hand underneath with the  peg where it would have been jointed to the wrist of the figure. The underneath is carefully carved to mimic a reed mat and on the top 10 loaves of bread and half a flat thick pancake. These are all carefully pegged in to the structure of the basket and one can see that as well from underneath.
A most unusual item on the market!
100 mm / 4 inches across.
Middle kingdom circa 1900 BC
From a UK collection.
Price: sold GBP
