Circular form, set with an eight-petalled white flower on a blue background with a central boss that is now missing. Found in the remains of the palace of Ramesses III at Tell el-Yahudiya - described by the collector as "two little star-like ornaments found on the site of a temple to the Sun, in the desert somewhere between Cairo and Suez".
