Perhaps the finest Egyptian Steatite Scaraboid seal we've have ever handled with the Carthouche of Thutmosis III, dating to the New Kingdom, 16th.-11th. century BC.

This very large Scaraboid is carved on both sides; one side s...

A very rare intact terracotta stamp seal of the New Kingdom in Egypt, 16th-11th century BC.

This type of large-format oval stamp seal was regularly used for sealing jar stoppers and bricks. Only a few have survived in this terrific condition with fully readable Hierglyphs. The seal is Carthouche-shaped so it likely contains a name of a Ruler, but so far untranslated. The glyphs includes 'Son Of Ra' and a large coiled Cobra. A large handle on the back.
