Blue Crown

1973.1.68

On display

Faience khepresh - a royal headress decorated with roundels, also known as the 'blue crown' or the 'war crown'. From a composite statue of a king. The blue glazed surface is damaged in several places. Typical type of mid 18th Dynasty sculpture, especially the Amarna Period. So far now record found of how Revd. William MacGregor acquired the object, and so we cannot be certain of an Amarna provenance.
