Add to album

This ceramic pot is among a number of grave goods placed in the rich burial of a woman and child at Qurneh in Egypt, sometime in the 17th Dynasty. The woman may have been a queen.

The pot has an out-turned rim and short neck, flaring gradually into a bag-shaped body with a slightly pointed base.

Wealthy people in ancient Egypt were buried with a range of objects to help them in the Afterlife. These included religious amulets, food and drink, furniture, games, clothes, jewels, and even miniature servants to do the work.
