Plate Title: Tutankhamun and His Princess (1990)
Bradex no.: 15-075-1.1
Actual diameter: 8 1/2 inches
For Egypt's historic first collector's plate series, no metal is too precious, no pigment too rare. With 22-karat gold and 16 brilliant pigments, artist Nageh Nasif Bichay (trained in the celebrated Amarna art style of ancient Egypt) painstakingly recreates the splendour and refinement of king Tutankhamun's treasure. Even the royal cartouches that sealed his tomb are re-created on each remarkable plate.
The owner loved the design of this plate so much that one was bought in 1990 and one other in 1991. Although they appeared identical but they each bears a unique plate number that can be checked from the back. It had never changed hands. The plate is in mint condition. It had never been exposed to sunlight.
