Translation hieroglyphs: The Osiris, the Lady of the House, The Chantress of Amen, Ta-Shed (et), True of Voice

Preservation: Intact

R-R: –

Provenance: ex Moustaki collection, sold by C. Ede and Artemis Gallery.

Comments: A published parallel for the shabti of this lady can be found in G. Janes nr. 66. That example has been broken of at the feet and the Russian Kaunas musuem example mentioned in G. Janes’s book too. This one is complete and shows the entire text. However the name remains a bit unclear. It looks like after Shed (the Shed glyph with the hand as sound enhancer), only MaA-Chrw follows.
Two other Ta-Shed (unpublished) shabtis are known to me as well.

Unfortunately, nothing is known about the ancient owner.
