Model Brick



Blue faience brick inscribed on four sides. Text is of a funerary nature and dedicated to an individual. Most likely from a tomb. Quite unusual. In his catalogue pf the Mayer Collection the assistant curator, Charles Gatty, wrote, "395. Tiles; three blue porcelain cubes (possibly tiles for inlaying?), inscribed with portions of the names and titles of a cook. H. 1 1/4 in." (1879, p.60).
