Comments

This is an extremely rare pottery overseer / dress of daily live. The wig and posture suggest an early date possible New Kingdom. On the other hand, the size and material is comparable to SC/36 so that the shabti can also be dated to the 25th Dynasty.
No pottery parallels are known to me.
