In this paper authors want to report on the appearance of new ancient Egyptian artefacts in a private collection in Slovakia. This collection consists of four pieces of original ancient Egyptian artefacts. They were examined in the Slovak Academy of Sciences. The Egyptological investigation was carried out at the Institute of Oriental Studies in Bratislava and the material analysis of the objects at the Institute of Archaeology in Nitra. The paper publishes the results of their research. The authors comprise various aspects of their investigation including the botanical examination of the wood and the textile composition of the cartonnages. Furthermore, the description and identification of artefacts, their decoration, iconography, transliteration and translation of the hieroglyphic inscription, and the dating of the artefacts are estimated as well.
