An old typewritten label applied to the front of the original early to mid 20th-century Egyptian wood base reads: "No. I89/30 Hématite / PHARAON de la XIIe / dynastie avec inscrip-/tion hieroglyphique." The inventory number with capital I used instead of a 1 is typical of Albert Eid's, a Belgian art dealer established in Cairo. Most of his stock was dispersed in the US after his death (see the note to Sotheby's, New York, June 13th, 2002, no. 30).

Silverman, Searching for Ancient Egypt: Art, Architecture, and Artifacts from the University of Pennsylvania Museum, 1997, p. 128, no. 35 (https://www.penn.museum/collections/object/206493)
