    Anyone know how old this piece is and /or what it may be worth. I have several Egyptian pieces and will likely be posting more soon. Thanks!

    It appears to be a contemporary painted papyrus from Egypt. A very common souvenir.

    They can be reproductions of ancient works. Here's another souvenir copy of yours.

    Similar items to this were in abundance at kiosks when the King Tut exhibit came to North America in the 1980s.

    Someone took a little trip to Egypt recently. Doubt souvenir items of this nature have much (resale) value.

    Alas, I wish I had, Debra. Got these from local thrift shops.

    Have been to Egypt a few times in the past. Very common tourist souvenirs.

    I bought a whole bundle of those for something like a dollar in Egypt. Used them as giftwrap. I do have a couple of good handpainted ones, also contemporary.

    I'd say the value is in how much one enjoys the imagery. I think ancient Egyptian graphic depictions are amazing.
    Also, I think the three female musicians on the plate/tray are somewhat overdressed, perhaps out of respect for tourist sensibilities.
