Tagua nut carving with master attention to the minute detail. Vegetable ivory or tagua nut is a product made from the very hard white endosperm of the seeds of certain palm trees. Vegetable ivory is named for its resemblance to animal ivory. Species in the genus Phytelephas (literally "elephant plant"), native to South America, are the most important sources of vegetable ivory.

Carved by the famous master-carver Ketut Seman from the mountain village of Tampaksering. Pictures say more than words here.

Dimensions 5.1 x 3.6 x 3.1 cm without stand and 8.1 cm height with stand.
Total weight with stand 44.9 grams.

Hardwood stand is fixed - non-detachable.

Will be safely packed in hard box. Posted from UK by Royal Mail registered tracked service.

    Le lot n'a pas été expédié de Londres mais de Bali. Le vendeur n'a pas attendu ma réponse pour l'expédier d'Indonésie. Avec des risques de frais de dédouanement. Avec DHL on ne peut pas refuser le colis

    Our shipping agent in London was on holiday. We asked the Buyer if she wants to wait for a week untill the agent is back to office or we ship DHL from Bali and reimburse the tax issues if any (vintage items do not attract any taxes). We got no response. Catawiki gives 3 days to ship. Having no response we shipped. The Buyer received the item, didn't pay any taxes and leaves a negative feedback. Mystery.

    Response by seller
    The Buyer does not speak English and have no idea of Google Translate. Bought an item from my partner, does not pick the item up from the post office, does not respond to local post office letters, opens dispute, does not respond to my partner's letters, probably waiting for the 3 weeks period for Catawiki payment to elapse. Then bought another similar item from me. So I wrote to him refusing to send the item untill dispute with my partner closed. After that he finally takes my parner's item from the post office, but still does not close the dispute and ignoring the reminders. Again probably waiting for the 3 weeks period for Catawiki payment to elapse, thus getting the item amd the monies (we had 3 similar cases from buyers with similar names). Now I posted the item, updated tracking info and get this feedback. There you go.

    Response by seller
    The item was paid for 22 April, the parcel was shipped from UK 26 April, the Buyer gives incorrect address on his account and incorrect telephone No where the other person responds not knowing the Buyer. The Buyer was immedeately advised (5 May) that the item returned to London and will be sent FREE OF CHARGE again once the correct address and the correct telephone No received. The response instead - this feedback.
  • Great piece and excellent transaction. Thanks!

    Catawiki requested we send all the parcels via UK for Buyer’s convenience, piece of mind and to avoid possible Import Tax issues. We now have an agent in London, so parcels, though by courier, now take longer: Bali-London-Buyer. Please be patient, should be posted from UK within 2 days. Oleg
