Item description

African Soapstone Kenya Change Dish Elephant Carved Pink Painted African Scene Kenya Africa Safari Rose Pink Stone Handcrafted Hand Dyed Carved Etched One of a Kind This is a great looking change or jewelry dish that is Artisan hand carved from the natural talc-like Soapstone, which is also called Kisii Stone. The soft stone varies in color from light cream to pink. This is a rose pink colored stone. It could be used as a soap dish, but I wouldn't recommend it for that because of the natural dyes. This is from Kenya or Zimbabwe, Africa. The back of the dish has a row of carved elephants walking in line. The dish is carefully etched with a traditional image of an African Elephant and tree. In order to create this type of art, the stone is stained with a vegetable dye into a picture and then the designs are carved or etched through the stain showing the pink colored stone below. The dish is rectangular with rounded edges and measures approximately 5 by 4 inches. It stands about 1 inch tall to the top of the elephant carvings. It has a smooth and cool feel to it. It is in very good vintage condition as you can see by the enlarged photographs. There is just a little shelf wear on the bottom of the dish. It has the outline from the label on the bottom. You can see the grain in the stone easily on the back and the rich pink color. This is your chance to own a lovely hand made one of a kind piece of African artistry. This will be sent Standard Post Mail with Tracking/Delivery Confirmation.
