I found this ushabti for sale and when i asked him details about it. This is what he said:
I cannot give you an exact date of the pieces. I am not an expert on Egyptian items, but based on their provenance, I believe most of the items are genuine, but some may be replicas..They belonged to an Egyptologist, Dr. Autry, that died some time ago and I am selling the for the family. The owner of the collection was a friend for the famous Eyyptologist Zaki Yusef Saad who wrote the book "The Excavatiosn at Helwan". They worked together in excavations according to the family. The owner, Dr .Autrey, wrote the forward to the Helwan book. I know the family personally, and they believe many of them to be real. If you are not satisfied, I will allow you to return the items. Thanks, Bob .
Was wondering if its real?

I think that for this object only a scientific material analysis can confirm the authenticity. If then, it is probably from the Late Period.

I have the excavation reports of Yusef Saad Zaki for Helwan and Saqqara in ASAE 40 - 43 (1940-43) seen through. Helwan was an Early Dynastic Cemetery. The most famous finds of this excavation are the oldest examples of Djet and Tit amulets, later associated with Osiris and Isis.

Saqqara comes as a possible origin in question, but there are no Uschebti findings mentioned expliziet in ASAE.

Greetings, Lutz.
