Grape Bunch Tile Inlay


Currently not on display


Architectural element in the form of a bunch of grapes, mould made from bright blue glazed faience, with a hole at the top but not perforated through. Objects like these were made as palace decoration during the New Kingdom, with large amounts recovered through excavations at Tell el Amarna. Surface chipped in places and patches of glaze gone.
