Throne with Lions and Worshipper

Catalogue Description:
One small bronze throne on a rectangular base. The throne is supported by two striding lions, one on each side. In the rear is another support (papyrus column?) On the pedestal beneath the throne is a winged scarab. At the end of the base opposite the throne is a kneeling male figure. Rising from the pedestal is a [sketch] shaped strip of metal for containing a foot rest. Four rectangular squares exist for insertion of (?). One side of the base and the front contain hieroglyphs. Condition: Good brown patina. Rough casting yields an irregular base in rear. Throne seat is soldered on separately (crudely done and cold hammered). Very dirty, but otherwise in excellent condition.
