    I found this plaster bust while going through a box. I am not sure who this bust represents. I thought Ramsey, King Tut or Nefertiti not sure. I was wondering maker and how old it could be, too? The dimensions are 4 1/4" longest length from base x 4 3/8" longest width from hat x 11 1/2" from bottom up to the front of the hat. Thank you for help in this Egyptian bust. Rob

    Probably Nefertiti. It would help to see in profile.

    Queen Nefertiti perhaps? (sniped by Bronwen) LOL

    Nefertiti, I'd say. I doubt it's plaster with that treacle glaze.

    Just for future searching for other Egyptians Rob, it would be: Ramses, Ramesses or Rameses not Ramsey.

    Yes, Bronwen wants a side view (profile).

    Yes, Nefertiti. Reproductions of this bust have been a popular decorator item for a very long time.
