A bronze necked bowl with rounded shoulders and a broken rim. It was decorated with two fine sets of parallel lines around the neck and the widest part of the middle. It was part of the MacGregor Collection purchased by Wellcome in 1922. A similar metal bowl (M.80.196.36) is in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art dated from the Late Period to the Roman Period. Such shaped bowls first appear in the New Kingdom but continue to be produced until Graeco-Roman times. Another comparable example is in the North Carolina Museum of Art (see Rocheleau, C. M. 2012, "Ancient Egyptian Art", Raleigh: North Carolina Museum of Art, pp. 84-85).
