This recently acquired collection includes over 350 rare and exquisite pieces representing various time periods in ancient Egypt. We have statues, wall fragments, sarcophagus fragments, wooden boxes, scarabs, ushabtis and so much more, from the 18th Dynasty to the Ptolemaic Period.

Featured Piece from the Collection:

Ancient Egyptian Limestone Coffin Limestone Miniature Coffin from Ptolemaic Egypt, 305-30 BC, with a removable lid and a removable mummy form with incised hieroglyphs on the inside. The coffin has raised and incised figures and symbols including: An Eye of Horus, Horus, winged Isis, baboon and hieroglyphs. The removable lid has a reclining Anubis, the jackal-headed patron God of embalming.

The embalmed bodies of the dead were wrapped for protection before they were deposited into coffins (sarcophagi) which were usually made from wood or limestone. The Sarcophagus is a vital part of ancient Egyptian funerary rites. It’s purpose was the protection of the body, preserving it from deterioration or mutilation. In Egyptian language, the sarcophagus might be called neb ankh (possessor of life). Click HERE for more information on this piece.
