Provenance: From the Collection of the late Julian Bird (inventory number 1102). Julian Bird was an avid collector of Egyptian Antiquities. His collection was formed from the 1970s onwards, mainly from the UK market. Mr. Bird's notes record that this piece was part of the Tackholm collection. "... A Scandinavian family collection formed between 1890-1940, mostly by Professor Richard Tackholm (1865-1937), who bought pieces in Paris and London around 1900, some from the Hilton-Price collection sold at Sotheby?s London 1911, and others as gifts from friend like Sir William Flinders Petrie. Others were acquired by his relative, a Swedish professor of botany, Vivi Laurent-Tackholm, who studied the flora of Egypt and lived in Cairo 1923-1978. Then inherited by descent via Mrs Elsa Berglunf (1903-1979). Authenticity Our parent company, ArtAncient Ltd. are members of the Antiquities Dealer's Association, LAPADA, CINOA and the BNTA.
