About this object

Shallow bowl of blue faience with black detailing, now very faded. The interior is decorated with a representation of the goddess Bastet seated before an offering table with a female worshipper, enclosed within a square frame, perhaps indicating a shrine. Cracked in places and a triangular section broken from rim. From el-Riqqa (Petrie's Riqqeh) "just below the surface of cemetery C1".
