Grape Bunch Tile Inlay


Currently not on display


Blue faience wall tile in the shape of a bunch of grapes that once decorated the cornice of King Akhenaten's north palace. There are two holes for attachment to a wall. Remains of a fabric impression on one side. It was found during 1924-5 excavations at Tell el-Amarna (find number 25/136) from area '25 centre', where ten inlay architectural elements in the form of bunches of grapes were found. Five pieces were given to the East Anglia Egyptian Society.
