No impersonal 'shopping basket' system here. I prefer to do all this personally by email.




There are hardly any items for sale beyond page 29 on the gallery here.

I have left so many sold items on show (and in the sold archive) as many collectors have said they find such photos and information useful to have.


699 *SOLD** Egyptian Middle Kingdom wooden offering basket

Click smaller images to see enlarged
Open new window fully to see maximum enlargement.
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
