Cartouche Plaque card

Cartouche Plaque


On display


A green glazed faience plaque in the form of three cartouches, with the plumed disks now missing from the top. The two outer cartouches contain ankhs and the central cartouche contains a representation of a ram's head above a rossette. The decoration is in raised relief. The handle at the back is broken off. Pierced with two holes at the bottom. It has been suggested the plaque is possibly a funerary urn label or a stamp seal. Glaze has erroded in places and surface dirt in places.
