amasis cover 1.png
The Amasis Collection  is a major collection of Egyptian antiquities. In this catalogue, the author has focused on an important group of shabti figures in the Collection, each of which has been fully researched including full details of provenance. Many illustrious names are to be found in the list of owners, including 30 shabtis for kings, queens and their families.

The Amasis Collection, which includes artefacts from a number of different cultures and periods, was started in the 1960s by a dedicated couple from Amsterdam and until now only a small number of people have ever been allowed to see it. One of the lucky ones was the Dutch artist and author Jean Thomassen who was given permission to publish photos and information about several pieces in his books.

Shabtis from Gerard van Hulst’s Collection are included in this catalogue together with examples from the famous collector and dealer Dr. John Möger and numerous others.

A few pages also show other highlights from The Amasis Collection.
