This unprecedented collection is issued under the sponsorship of the Ragab Papyrus Institute and Museum of Cairo. Authorized for firing outside of Egypt under the hallmark of Osiris Porcelain licensed by an affiliate of the Bradford Exchange, it represents one of the finest achievements in modern ceramic art.
