|This group of twelve individually priced ancient Egyptian scarabs and cowroids (96.240HD, 96.256HD, 96.326HD, 96.451HD, 96.457HD, 96.462HD, 96.499HD, 96.673HD, 96.681HD, 96.803HD, 96.900HD and 96.903HD) is from the well-known Philip Mitry collection. All in this group are dated from the 12th through the 18th Dynasties, c.1991-1307BC. The selection is from his huge collection that once numbered over 1200 individual pieces. Mitry was a registered antiquities dealer who owned a shop in Cairo. In the early ‘50s he sold his store, then known as the Anglo-American Bookstore and Antiquities Shop, and moved to the US. HD Enterprises purchased the Mitry collection in 1996 and have sold pieces to museums, jewelry designers, and collectors all over the world. Of particular interest in this group are two feldspar pieces, a scarab showing the Pharaoh killing an enemy, and an Eye of Horus. If you are looking for a quantity of authentic ancient scarabs, we still have a large number available. Each photo is noted with first the Inventory Number of the item in brackets, followed by a description of the material and the type of amulet, the millimeter dimensions, the image viewing the piece from the top, the hieroglyphic characters on the base, and finally the price. Select or ask any question by referring first to the Trocadero Item Number on this page, and then our Inventory Number shown on the given photograph. Any that have been sold will be so-marked on the appropriate photo. A purchase comes with a small display card, information about Mitry and his shop, and a certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
