A highly unusual 'heart' amulet, Egyptian and likely dating to the Middle Kingdom, 2133-1797 BC.

The amulet is carved with unusually fine details and with a pierced lug above. Through the lug it's mounted with an original ancient twisted silver wire, likely from the time of use!.

Size: ca. 23 mm. high and 33 mm. incl. the mount - a gem of an amulet and wearable today!.

Provenance: Private German Collection (ES), bought 1972 from the Collection of Prof. Haeberlin, from an older collection, and brought back from Egypt in the 19th. century.
