Height 22mm (7/8in.). ~ ~ ~ Ex Dr. Carl Devries Collection ~ ~ ~ Dr. Devries (1921-2010) attended Wheaton College in Illinois, earning his B.A. in 1942, M.A. in 1944 and B.D. in 1947. He served as an instructor in Biblical archaeology at Wheaton from 1945 until 1952, before leaving to pursue his Ph.D. in archaeology from the University of Chicago, which he attained in 1960. As a member of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, Devries excavated in Egypt from the early 1950s until his retirement from the university in 1975, and was part of the Nubian Expedition from 1963 to 1964. He served as a substitute pastor in the Chicago area following his retirement from archaeology. Devries acquired the bulk of his collection during the period he was employed in Egypt, and the vast majority of his pieces were purchased from Sayed Molattam, a noted antiquities dealer based in Luxor, where Devrie’s work with the Oriental Institute was based. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ GUARANTEED TO BE AUTHENTIC.
