A known as a “slipper coffin”, first popular in Palestine, Egyptians adopted them as a fashion for thier own burials. They are called this because, apart from the lid, they were made in one piece and the mummy slid into them rather like a foot into a slipper.  The lid then closed the gap to fully seal the coffin.    A similar example can be found in the Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery and the Brooklyn Museum
