Rare lid and coffin to feature in London Antiques Fair

A rare anthropoid sarcophagus lid and coffin with its mummy board, known as the Posno Sarcophagus, are to be offered through the New York based Safani Gallery.  Masterpiece London, an antiques fair, will open on 28 June till 4 July on the South grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, London.  Dated to the Third Intermediate Period, the artefacts once belonged to Gustav Posno, a nineteenth century collector, whose collection also found its way to the Louvre.
