Superb, turquoise glazed faience amulet depicting three members of the Osirian family. Harpocrates (the infant Horus), wearing the sidelock of youth, stands at the centre, flanked on the left by Nephthys (sister of Osiris) and on the right by his mother, Isis (sister-wife of Osiris). This amulet represents those closest to Osiris. The trio hold hands and all stride forwards with their left leg. The two goddesses wear their appropriate headdresses: that of Nephthys represents a house with a basket on top, whilst Isis wears the Throne of Egypt Headdress. The reverse is unworked. The item is mounted on a custom-made stand.
