|A beautiful bronze figure of the goddess Neith, 26th Dynasty, c. 664 – 525 BC, showing incredible detail and nice style. She wears the red crown of honor, a broad collar, armlets, bracelets and anklets, right hand at her side, left forward grasping what was probably a staff of some kind made from a precious metal. Some light cleaning and the base is inscribed on three sides. A marvelous example! EX, French collection H: 6 7/8” (17.6 cm). cf. Daressy, "Statues de Divinités du Museé du Caire" (1905), no. 39.378 for a similar type.|
