Catalogue Description:
Small faience group of three seated male figures before a small offering table. When the piece was intact there was probably another table of offerings in front of right end figure. In some spots there seems to be very faint traces of pale green glaze notably on the left end suggesting that the piece was originally glazed with green. Possibly the group is an offering piece. Condition: Entire right corner of base missing; head of central figure missing; end figure considerably chipped, back cracked.
