The figurine appears to have a modern (i.e. 19th/20th century) addition of a crown. The wood of the crown is visually quite different and the quality of the carving is much cruder when compared to the main body of the figurine.
The scarab is inscribed with the cartouches of Ramesses II on the base. The left hand cartouche reads Ramesses (his personal name) while the right hand cartouche reads Usermaatre Setepenre (his throne name).
A scarab with a similar inscription can be found in the Grand Egyptian Museum (accession number: EMC_SR_7/4596).
An ancient Egyptian or Sudanese black-topped red ware pot (also known as B-ware).
In Egypt, black-topped red ware was common in the Predynastic Period particularly in the Badarian (4400-4000 BC) and Naqada I and II periods (4000-3200 BC). While production slowed and eventually stopped in Egypt, in ancient Sudan black-topped red ware production continued until about 1500 BC.
This shabti likely dates to the 19th dynasty of ancient Egypt. The text on the shabti is a shabti spell (chapter 6 of the Book of the Dead) which calls upon the shabti to assist the deceased person in the afterlife.
