"Wheel-made pottery coffin with an opening at the head, which allowed for the insertion of the body. The opening was covered by a faceplate with hand-modeled facial features. Traces of a central band of inscription and several side bands are visible, as well as a central winged figure." (From museum website)

I wasn't able to get a very good full length photo, so the following will have to do:

However, I took note that this coffin was "excavated by Francis Ll. Griffith for the Egypt Exploration Fund". Just searching for his name and "coffin" brought up a book written by Mr. Griffith, _The Antiquities of Tell El Yahudiyeh_, in which he describes his findings:

"The internment consisted of an outer coffin of large crude bricks, laid horizontally, while two bricks leaning against each other made a kind of vaulted roof (see Pl. XIV.) Inside was a mummiform terra-cotta coffin (Pl. XIII. 2), made of one piece, with a large opening at the head, through which the corpse was introduced. This done, the head was covered with a facepiece (Pl. XIV.1_, on which were modelled the features, the hair and sometimes the hands." (Page 16)

Perhaps example #2 is the body of MFA #88.1041?

Wikipedia has more examples of these slipper coffins now at the Jerusalem Museum in Israel, here if not there.
