This is an advertisement for reproduction medals produced by A. D. Loewenstark and Sons. The Khedive of Egypt (or the Turkish viceroy) presented a bronze, star shaped medal to British troops who were engaged in military action in Egypt in 1882. It was then re-issued for campaigns between 1885- 1890. It was a 5 pointed star with a central raised circle with an image of the Sphinx in front of the Pyramids. The word Egypt was printed above the image followed by a date. Collecting replicas of military medals was a popular Victorian pastime.
