Two hoards of treasure were discovered in 1906.
They contained some really beautiful items, and some of them ended up in the MET museum Very Happy The museum has a page showing some of these pieces.

I think the pieces are worth looking at Very Happy

Other items are at the Cairo museum. These bracelets are quite spectacular I think:

Wonderful images Anneke.

From all this magnificent things I only saw the bracelets earlier.

I am glad that you provided these links. Very Happy

I find the jugs also very spectacular, those ancient goldsmihts were masters in their work. You are right about the bracelets they are so beautiful.

I really like the silver cup with the gold ibex handle.

They are amazing pieces of workmanship.

I always thought of Tawosret as somewhat representing the end of a greater era. The arts and crafts certainly didn't suffer yet at that point Very Happy

I thank you for the extra links - I knew about the Met Museum page, but dodn't have the links from the Cairo Museum. Tell Basta is an area of continuing fascination for me, so these are very appreciated. Very Happy
