Egyptian terra cotta scarab mold. New Kingdom, 1600-1100 BC. Brownish red terra cotta. Nearly identical to an example at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, accession number 11.215.683; found at the palace of Amenhotep III during the museum dig of 1911. This would suggest Dynasty 18, 1390 - 1353 BC for the present example. From a Chicago 'Gold Coast' collection, inherited from an old Boston estate. Details to purchaser.
