Comments

Provenance: sold at auction in Bergerac France, June 2007, collected in Egypt in 1882 by a French engineer who was the director general of "des sucreries du vice-roi" of Egypt in Luxor, Mr. B.

A similar example is published in Valbelle's "Deir el Medina", nr. 104.. Another example was also sold at auction in France in October 2007.
According to Valbelle, the shabtis of this owner were excavated from Theban Tomb 10. Note the similarity of the mold with the Cache 2 shabtis of Di-Khonsu-iry.
