ITEM DESCRIPTION Item Description Up for your consideration is a small collection of 5 ancient Egyptian pottery amulets, as described below. 1. The light blue/gray glazed piece is a faience amulet in the shape of The Djed pillar, and represents stability, strength, endurance, and protection. Symbolically it depicts a stylized Tree of Life and simultaneously Osiris' backbone. It was placed... near spines of the mummies and was thought to lend them strength. It dates to the 25th dynasty to Late Period, about 700-500 BCE. It measures 1.5" tall, and is in excellent condition, with the possible exception of a small chip at the backside base. 2. Miniature Scarab Beetle (0.5" long). The scarab was a common type of amulet, seal or ring-bezel found in Egypt. It was only during the Middle Kingdom (2055-1650 BC) that they were used as seals. The flat underside of the scarab, carved in stone or moulded in faience (a type of glazed pottery) or glass, was usually decorated with designs or inscriptions, sometimes incorporating a royal name. I do not know what is on the underside of the piece. There are several small chips to the underside, and some wear to the top. 3. Osiris (turquoise glazed): Ushabtis were figures that represented people, generally workers, to accompany the deceased into the afterlife. They mostly took the form of the mummified god of rebirth and resurrection Wsir (Osiris). This piece dates to 400 BCE, and is in excellent condition. It measures 1.75" long. 4 & 5. Two unglazed amulets depicting the god Bes. The dwarf god wearing a feather plumed crown, standing on a slender rectangular base, with horizontal suspension hole in the headdress. Late period 26th-30th Dynasty circa 664-332 BC. They measure about 1/2" long, one has about 3 small chips, and the other in in excellent condition. SHIPPING COSTS/TERMS SHIPPING COST FOR THIS ITEM IS $14.50 This quote is for the Continental U.S. only, and the item will be sent via UPS or FedEx. This charge includes all costs including quality packing, shipping fees, & full insurance at the purchase price. International shipping is available, but prior permission by the seller is required before you bid. WHY SHIPPING MAY TAKE UP TO 10 DAYS AFTER PAYMENT Safe shipping methods is a priority for me!!! Often this requires having custom made packaging from an outside service, or the use of 3rd party insurance (i.e. not from UPS or FedEx who are notorious for not paying claims). These issues can be resolved, but require the use of a professional packing service, and this can add several days to the shipment. If this is an issue, please notify me, as most items are shipped much sooner (especially if I can pack the item myself). However, please be aware that when making a purchase, there is a possibility that I will need to outsource the packaging. I do guarantee that it will be shipped (from our end) within 10 days.
