Tagua Nut Carvings

The Tagua tree is a palm which grows only in some rare subtropical climates. Its oval shaped fruits are called Tagua Nuts. These fruits harden in the heat of the subtropics and can then be carved. Their weight, color, and hardness are similiar to Elephant ivory. Because of their similiar characteristics, they represent the best substitute for Elephant ivory. In this way, we can help stop the needless slaughter of animals for their ivory. Each carved nut represents years of achievement of a master craftsman carver. Tagua nut carvings have become wonderful collector’s items. Each beautiful carving comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Then Back to the United States

Antler Art

The antlers used in our featured art come from deer, elk, and moose. Let us first assure you that no animals were endangered or killed in the production of these unique items. Antlers are shed periodically, once a year. At that time, they are gathered by our artisans, cut and polished, and designed to create our beautiful pen sets, letter openers, and business card holders direct from Mother Nature. Each piece is uniquely different, one of a kind.

Made in the Ozarks, this beautiful handcrafted knife is forged from the excellent steel of an antique circular saw blade. The handle is fashioned from deer antler. A brass guard is positioned between the knife and the handle.

The piece is artist signed and dated.
