This is a nice ancient scarab with a superb documentation from 1934.
The Ring with the scarab was bought 1934 from the dealer Mohamed M. El-Gabry
in Cairo near the Shepherd’s Hotel. He had the permission from The Egyptian Museum
in Cairo (Licence No. 33).
This scarab ring will come with the original autographed certificate from Mohamed M. El-Gabry
with the handwritten description of the scarab ring on it. In addition with a paper about general
information about scarabs. These papers and the scarab ring were packed in the original box from
the dealer Mohamed M. El-Gabry. This box was packed with wrapping paper and sealed from the
„Service de Antiquites“, with a wax seal and stamp of the Egyptian Museum of Cairo and autographed
from „Le Conservator du Musee“ on 18th March 1934.

There is a ring sizer on the ring which is easily removable.
