Seller: artancientltd (9,489) 99.4%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 291158284854 Original or Reproduction: Original, Genuine or Reproduction: Genuine, Type: Rosette, Period: New Kingdom, Details: An ancient Egyptian faience rosette, dating to the New Kingdom, likely the reign of Ramesses III, 1186–1155 BC. Depicting a flowering daisy, with eight white petals against a grey background, the central boss in vibrant yellow, intended to imitate the gold of the nails securing these rosettes to palace walls. The rosette has a long history in Egyptian decorative borders and ornamental bands, it was popular at most palace sites. Indeed they give us a vivid idea of Egyptian palace décor, and what it might have been like to walk those corridors more than three thousand years ago. Based on its style, this particular piece is most likely to have adorned the walls of the palace of Pharaoh Ramesses III at Tell el-Yahudiya.
