This is a lovely antique canopic jar fashioned after the Ancient Egyptian God Horus. The blue faience glaze still holds its luster, and the hieroglyphics are still easy to read. This was purchased from a massive 1970s private collection and has been extremely well cared for.

Canopic jars are containers that were used by the ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife. They were commonly either carved from limestone, or were made of pottery. These jars were used by the ancient Egyptians from the time of the Old Kingdom until the end of the Late Period.

This antique Egyptian artifact has been dated to between the Late Period to Alexander’s Conquest (c.664-332 B.C.) by Mr. Matthew Wicks of Ancient Hands LTD, and accompanied by a signed PDF copy of its “Provenance & Ownership” document. Alternatively, it may have been made in Egypt during the “Grand Tour/Egyptian Revival” period (1780s-1930s).
