3000-year-old Egyptian beauty to be star attraction at TEFAF New York Fall fair
From the city of Thebes c.943-716 BC, the 20.3cm high wooden carving is painted in ochre red, the cosmetic lines, eyebrows and pupils in black, the cornea in white.

LONDON.- At almost 3000 years old, this Egyptian sarcophagus mask of a woman has a 19th century provenance to the Pitt-Rivers Museum in Dorset.

From the city of Thebes c.943-716 BC, the 20.3cm high wooden carving is painted in ochre red, the cosmetic lines, eyebrows and pupils in black, the cornea in white.

Unusually for such a piece, the records give an exact date for the sale to Lieut-General Fox Pitt-Rivers (1827-1900) of Dorset. He acquired it from ‘W. Talbot Ready, Rathbone Place, London, W’, for 1.15.0 on 17th March 1891.

Mayfair ancient art gallery Charles Ede Ltd will offer it for 65,000 at the TEFAF New York Fall fair from October 27-31 at the Park Avenue Armory.

Established in 1971, Charles Ede Ltd. is one of the leading international dealers in ancient art from around the Mediterranean. Renowned for its thorough research and providing depth of provenance, it continues the tradition of its founder, Charles Ede, who sold his first item of ancient art in 1959.

Over the past 46 years the gallery has produced more than 300 catalogues, exhibited at some of the world's leading art fairs, and sold to many of the greatest museums and collectors.

After nearly 45 years on Brook Street, a move to larger premises at Three King's Yard in October 2014 marked a new phase in its history. The gallery continues show and publish exceptional objects from ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, as well as the Near East.

Charles Ede Ltd is a member of IADAA (International Association of Dealers in Ancient Art), ADA (Antiquity Dealers Association) and BADA (British Antique Dealers Association).

Charles Ede Ltd. looks forward to welcoming you at the gallery or any of the art fairs which we attend: TEFAF Maastricht in March, TEFAF New York in May and TEFAF New York in October.
