Museum collection reproductions of important Ur artifacts.
This category includes reproductions of Ur artifacts made to be included in a museum collection. Many of the most important, unique artifacts from Ur were part of the share that went to the Iraq Museum, and several of these were copied so that they could also be displayed in London or Philadelphia. Copies of gold objects were often made of gold plate to closely resemble the original.
