Faience in the Third Intermediate
(note: some of these objects may belong to the late New Kingdom (about 1250-1069 BC))
Objects made in Faience; note in particular the fragments of relief decorated faience stemmed cups ('chaliceds'), which are a highlight of artistic production in the Third Intermediate Period. Small amulets, often very fine figures of deities, also show the high level of faience working.
