Provenance

By repute, gift to Helen de Clermont in Cairo from Sir W.M Flinders Petrie in 1899

Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie (1853-1942) was a renowned British archaeologist and Egyptologist and professor whose contributions in these fields were vast, notably in devising a dating method using archaeological pottery from excavation sites. The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology forming part of the University College London houses one of the greatest collections of archaeological artifacts from Egypt and Sudan. A large portion of the 80,000 works came from Petrie's excavations.
