Hi Justin,

     Not bad for a first attempt. Your inscription makes sense "Sa Ra", son of the sun,  usually precedes the nomen (written in a cartouche) which is one of the five titulary titles of a pharaoh. The ancient Egyptians rarely, if ever, left a raised dot in the center of Ra. The color and body of the glaze are not right but close. The sculpting shows some art deco influence but not ancient Egyptian.
     Cool!
Russ
