About this object

Fragment of an amulet. Openwork design (maybe a wedjat eye?) and seemingly originally circular in shape. No trace of other part in the collection which is to be expected as it was broken when acquired in 1867. There is a sketch of it made by Charles Gatty on the 'Gatty Slip' record card.
