Provenance: Ex-Dr. Ulrich Müller Collection, Zurich, published in: Schlögl, H. and Brodbeck, A. “Ägyptische Totenfiguren aus Öffentlichen und Privaten Sammlugen der Schweiz”, 1990. The shabti was published in this study as *150w Totenfigur für Nes-ta-neb-ischeru (Fragment) ZP I 22*. Further examples in the same book.
Other parallels in Budapest, Cracow, and Leiden. See ARAUJO, p.413. Coffin in Florence (found at Bab el-Gasus, 1891 –DARESSY A. 20; NIWINSKI, Coffins, no. 191). Although it seems logical to add this shabti to the Cache 2 list, Aubert and other have not specifically referred these shabtis as Cache 2, therefore SC/53 is not included in the Cache 2 list.
The shabti is interesting due its nice preserved blue washed pottery (which is usually eroded).
