Highly interesting offering dish, Egyptian, 2nd.-1st. millenium BC.

The piece is from Luxor and purchased on the site in the 1960s. A spectacular piece that we initially sought was made of faiance, but it's very heavy and the terric Sun ray pattern on the back is surely carved, not mould cast. Glazed on the front with green-blue glaze. The back is basically a Sun disc, so a dating around the reign of Akhenaten, 14th. century BC...
