Fine Pharoah

King Tut as realized in 1959 by the famed Italian ceramicist Urbano Zaccaganini. It has purposefully aged quality to the crazing and if it were actually dug up after thousands of years. Interesting side note: Our shop's proprietor Stephen has a real family connection to the original discovery. Stephen's maternal grandmother was actually present in Egypt when Tutankhamun's tomb was excavated and she even knew Howard Carter. How's that for a little bit of history repeating?
