Title: Help with amulet identification
Post by: Pawel C on May 02, 2018, 04:26:35 pm
Hello,

Could you tell me if this amulet is original and if so, how old is it?

Kind regards,
Paweł

Hi!

It appears to be a broad collar element. The top would have had a loop and the bottom of the back shows the remains of a loop that has broken off. These elements were made for a very long time. From the color of the glaze (on my monitor) I would say probably Third Intermediate Period.

Hello.

Thank you very much for your help! Are they any literature about collecting Ancient Egypt?

Kind regards,
