It is behind glass and hard to photograph. There is however a much better image on the British in the British Museum catalogue, which also has full details. It was found in the Valley of the Kings in the tomb of Amennhotep III and is inscribed with his name. Although we think of finds coming principally from the tombs of Tutankhamun and Yuya / Thuya, there are many broken objects like this from other tombs in the Valley of the Kings which hint at how lavishly provisioned they must once have been.
