    CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION Light blue glazed faience triad of, from left to right, Isis, Horus as a child, and Nephthys. The three figures stride upon a flat plinth with high back slab. The two goddesses extend out past the slab. Their outer arms are at their sides; with their inner hands they hold the hands of Horus. The two females wear lappet wigs crowned with their emblems. Horus who is nude, wears a tight caplike hairdo and sidelock. There is an eyelet on the rear of the back slab. Condition: Perfect but for the dark stains on and around Horus.
