is a French spelter figural sculpture of an Egyptian Pharaoh head. It is signed on the back by the artist, J. Guillot. The figure measures 15 1/2 inches or 39 centimeters high.

The bust shows a handsome bearded pharaoh, his beard curled in the Assyrian fashion. At the Pharaoh's chest is a winged falcon. The Pharaoh sits on a plinth that is engraved on 4 sides with hieroglyphs. The bust is signed under the left shoulder: "J GUILLOT 1876".
