Comments: No exact parallels are published for this shabti. However, for a similar type with the same name see Schneider 188.8.131.52. Other parallels have been sold by a Dutch dealer in the 1960’s/1970’s unpublished so far and one is published by Royal Athena Gallery. I think all these shabtis, including the Leiden examples are all for the same owner. See also SC/120.
These white faience, often small, shabtis frequently appear in the 20th dynasty, compare the Vice-King Hori’s shabtis and his wife’s shabtis: Khait (SC/62).
