Hi I bought a "thing" the other day. It solid and I believe it has come of something bigger.

It is based on a Qebehsenuef canopic vase and I believe (but am not sure) it dates from the 19th century.

There is come writing on the front and I'D LOVE it if someone can tell me roughly what it says. I think that might well help in solving the mystery of what this is.

Below are some pictures.

Many thanks, Mark

Seems that Aset and Neseret probably still on holliday ... That's why I answer, although I am in no way an expert for translations.

From my point of view and as far as the photo allows, I would say the inscription makes no sense and is not translatable. Only hieroglyphs in simple form and writing, not very detailed carved, used as decorating elements.

Depending on the material, I would say it is a decorative element, maybe from the 19th / early 20th century. Perhaps it was a part of a piece of furniture. Or exterior, part of a building, for example a family-tomb? Or a stand-alone-element in a garden landscape?

Greetings, Lutz.
