The fragment of glass inlay was probably from Alexandria, a major centre of glass production in Ancient Egypt.

It was excavated by Sir Robert Mond (1867-1938), who was a British chemist, archaeologist and president of the Egypt Exploration Society. He bequeathed his collection to the British Museum which then distributed some of it to other museums, including Sheffield City Museum.
