    This month scientists announced they had strong sonic evidence that a 2nd tomb exists behind King Tut. They hope it belongs to his mother Queen Nefertiti (ca 1370-40 bc).

    However, and I didn't want to reveal this until now - I have her mummy coffin. I found it in a dark, dank, dirty location for $1.99.

    Okay, enough: This was too fun not to post. And brings me to what is Vintage and what is Antique? Antique generally means 100 yrs old. Finding her tomb? - Antique definitely. Vintage - like wine - should include the year. So, this pencil coffin from the British Museum is vintage 1989. I love anything Egyptian! Will post some of my fun oldish (vintage) and unique Egypt collection soon. Hope you enjoy and share your Egypt side too....

      My hometown, San Jose, California, is home to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, which houses the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in western North America. Fascinating stuff there. [;>)

      Thanks for telling me NevadaBlades - I didn't know that! I will have to visit. Bowers Museum in Santa Ana has a mummies of the world exhibit right now - which I plan to see also. Thanks!!

      Greaaat Item ! I love collecting Egyptomania and have all the best books on it. I remember especially in the early half of the 90's so many egyptomania pens were coming out also and these items. I had the King Tut coffin with the wrapped body inside it also. I remember going to one of the museums in Ottawa and visiting a curator who was the author of one of my fav books on Egyptomania in 1984 and
      he gave me a very expensive book I had not got yet, and that was wonderful as the book cost well over 100.

      Thanks Phil for enjoying. So many great egyptomania items, I have a lot of them too. I wanted to attend Tut exhibit, Chicago in 1976 but my parents didn't spring for the trip. Since then I've found a lot of great Tut- and Egypt-omania, and always collected. I have a few good books but I bet your book is great, please post! I don't have a complete Neiger necklace, but a few parts.....big sigh....collecting within one's budget right?

      Great post Valentino :-)
      Love too all Egyptomania, so colorful!

      I will always remember the shock I received when I had the luck to visit Toutankhamon exposition in Paris Petit Palais in 1967 (was 9 then!)...
      You arrived by a dark blue with golden stars (as in Vallée des Rois tombs) low lightened corridor, leaning towards the treasures! The scenary was astounding.

      I traveled to Egypt in 1984 and wanted to visit King THUT at the Cairo Museum...
      What a deception it was... Pieces were displayed without any grace in dusty windows!!! I think now all the museum has been refurbished in a more convenient way.

      Bonnie - you are so sweet to say that!

      Kyra - wow what a wonderful childhood memory. And, yes my boyfriend visited the Cairo Museum in 2001 and said it was great.

      Thanks friends for the loves:

      Phil - I find a lot of my kitchy-ist Egyptomania at thrift stores - usually brand new, obviously gifts for kids who weren't that excited. I have the "Lift the Lid on Mummies" -make your own mummy kit 1998 Running Press. And a "Fun with Hieroglyphics" ink pads, and "Fun with Amulets" play dough molds from the Met Museum, NY and...Would like to see your book.

      There are a number of great books but I have my favourite one of all, the reason I went to meet the co-writer. He always helped guide me to more finds and I tried to keep up.

      Didn't wantvto take up space on the other post. I have German heritage along with Brittish and Scottish every society has a little darkness. I don't disrespect what anyone wishes to collect. This tea set was just two obvious to anyone to look up background. So i don't think it was intended to make a great profit from. Your idea was a good thought and I was would wager it is correct. A prop
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Yes, Caperkid - I agree not to keep adding to that post. My other half is British. What a mix, best and worst of both? It's intriguing thinking about why someone collects controversial stuff - why not? It's different and might make good dinner party conversation? I love history and welcome talking about it.
    14. Caperkid, 5 years ago
      Agreed and agreed British history is really dark. The slavery in north america, the Scottish clearances, expulsion of Acadians. Just the Nazi seems so hated.
