Here's another Vintage tagua carving from the early 1990's. 

The carving is excellent but the dye is what caught my eye.  What the artist did was drop the carving in a cocobolo dye made by his wife for basket fiber.  Cocobolo is a wood which the artists carve. So they use the chips to make a dye by boiling it.  I can tell from the design left on the carving that there were some large chips in the pot. 

 There are several like this in the store.  I have made dye and tried to make a few for myself. Easy enough until you get to the final polishing...

The signature N. S. is a member of the Negria family. 

 Tagua carvings are all one-of-a-kind treasures.

Shipping within the USA is free.
