Nice anepigraphic shabti, depicted mummiform with tripartite wig and false beard.
The small face shows nicely modeled features and rather large ears.
The hands are crossed over the chest and hold agricultural implements. The seedbag is slung over the left shoulder. The shabti has a back pillar and stands on an integral base.
The remnants of bone glue on the back point to an old mount. Bone glue was a material used until the 1950s.

H. 10.8 cm (4.3 in)
Repaired break across the calves. With old mounting remnants on the back.
Old US private collection prior to 1950, judging from the bone glue used. Thence Arte Primitivo, New York.
The authenticity of the item is unconditionally guaranteed.
