I bought these interesting figures in a street market in Egypt many years ago, replicas of the XXVI Dynasty tomb figures. These statues were placed within the tomb of an individual to magically come to life performing any work required by the god Osiris in the afterlife. They measure 7 cm and 11,5 cm.

Thanks for looking!

ABOUT ME - PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING!

I retired one year ago and try to supplement my pension by selling things I have been collecting for the past 40+ years. I will also have to downsize soon so need to sell a lot of my pre-loved things.

I strive to be a 5 star seller. Your feedback is critical to my success on eBay. I ask that you leave a positive feedback with all 5 star ratings if you are happy. If you feel that you cannot leave a positive comment with all 5 stars PLEASE LET ME KNOW and I will do my best to resolve the matter. IT'S NOT IN MY INTEREST to disappoint you, if I do I will get negative feedback and obviously I don't want that - I want to keep my 100% feedback! I'm not planning to run away to South America either! I do my best to describe items as well as possible but I'm not infallible. I want to ensure you are another satisfied customer - if you are happy with your purchase I'm happy, too! Please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason.

POSTAGE AND PACKAGING CHARGES:

ALL ITEMS CAN BE PICKED UP FROM ME.

Please consider that I have to drive around looking for boxes and I have to buy all the packing materials. I don't make a profit on the P & P, in fact, I often underestimate it and then have to bear the loss myself - I sell many breakable items and pack them really well, I have never had anything break in transit! But the packing materials cost money and in addition I have to drive to the post office and pay for parking!

Security: Almost all of my items are one-offs so can't be replaced or repeated. Therefore please consider how much you value the item you have just bought. I usually quote recorded delivery for added safety. Should you wish to have a cheaper postage please let me know! I don't set the postage charges in the UK which sadly are very high so please don't blame me for them when leaving feedback!

SHOULD AN ITEM ARRIVE BROKEN PLEASE NOTIFY MY IMMEDIATELY AND KEEP THE PACKAGING AND THE PIECES so that I can claim from the Post office. You will then need to send them to me to allow me to claim and I will then give you a refund.
