Dorothy Shepherd Payer (1916-1992), possibly purchased from George Scanlon 
Estate of Dorothy Shepherd Payer
From 1992 to 1993
Mary Slusser (1918-2017), Washington, DC, by inheritance from the estate of her sister Dorothy Shepherd Payer 
Freer Gallery of Art, gift of Mary Slusser, Washington, DC 
 See Curatorial Remark 2 in the object record.
 Dr. George Scanlon visited Egypt beginning in 1950. He conducted archaeological excavations in Fustat between 1964 and 1980 through nine seasons. It is possible that he acquired the Fustat sherds during this time period. The card found with the collection states, “ex-collection of George Scanlon 1968, $125 acq'd in Cairo." It is unclear whether George Scanlon acquired these sherds in 1968 or whether the 1968 year refers to when Dorothy Shepherd Payer bought them.
