Provenance: This piece was purchased by the heir of Hans' Møller Hansen a few years ago from a noted auction house. This collection was inspired by the interest of Hans Moller Hansen who acquired many stunning Egyptian antiquities during his visit to Egypt in the late 1920's. After his parting in 1958, many of the items in his collection was passed down to his daughter and then to her son. Many of the items in this collection have been treasured by the family for over 90 years. It is with great honour Pegasus Gallery Antiquities offers these for sale to the market.
