Exclusive to the British Museum, a travel card holder inspired by the ancient Egyptian hieroglyph alphabet.

The wallet is part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

This travel card holder is made in the UK from recyclable PVC, and is ideally sized for carrying bank cards or travel cards. The wallet features the letters of the hieroglyphic writing system alongside their Latin counterparts.

The design is inspired by the hieroglyph symbols featured on a watercolour study by Henry Beechey (1788/9-1862), of an ancient Egyptian wall painting from the tomb of Pharaoh Sety (Seti) I.  Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were developed c.3000 BC, and were used for formal inscriptions. The alphabet is comprised of a series of symbols and characters, which includes birds, reeds and ankhs. The hieroglyphs were sometimes called ‘The Words of the Gods’ and were mainly used by priests.

A fabulous fashion gift for lovers of ancient Egyptian history.
