A  large and interesting Egyptian scarab made in pottery.
This is a known type documented in Petrie's Buttons and Design Scarabs 1925PL VI, 1035A and p.27.

It is  also shown online at the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology  of the University of London, website, where it's dimensions are incorrectly recorded and it is also incorrectly stated that it is made in steatite. These scarabs are definitely not made in steatite but mould made in pottery with the legs incised in rather rough design with a knife before firing.  I have seen approximately  a dozen of these over the last 15 years or so and all were in pottery.  I have never seen one with any remnants of a glaze nor one any smaller than this one.

This one  is 29mm long.

Price: sold GBP
