Pottery mould for the manufacture of small faience objects in the shape of the goddess Taweret. Compare with W. M. F. Petrie, 'Tell el Amarna' (1894) pl. XVIII nos. 296-298. Many hundreds of moulds have been collected from New Kingdom urban sites such as Gurob, Tell el-Amarna and Qantir. The exact provenance of this amulet is not known. It was collected by Mr. J. H. T. Dawson around 1910 whilst he lived in Egypt.
