Ancient Egyptian New Kingdom Faience Rosettes - 1550 BC

Four Ancient Egyptian faience rosettes, dating to the New Kingdom, Reign of Ramesses, 1550–1295 BC.

These remarkable inlays are often called rosettes, though they probably depict daisies or mayflowers. They demonstrate accomplishment in faience artistry, using creams, grey-browns and yellows to great effect.

Rosettes have a long history in Egyptian decorative borders and ornamental bands, and they were popular at most palace sites. They give us a vivid idea of Egyptian palace décor, and what it might have been like to walk those corridors more than 3,000 years ago. Based on their style, these particular rosettes are most likely to have adorned the walls of the palace of Pharaoh Ramesses III at Tell-el-Yahudiye
