This adorable soapstone two piece set depicting a cat and a mouse staring (lovingly?) at each other never fails to bring smiles to customers. Both pieces are carved from fair trade soapstone, also known as Kisii stone, and are the natural ivory color of the soapstone with gray dots. The cat is approximately 5 1/2" tall, 2 1/2" deep and 2" wide; the mouse is 2" tall, 1" deep and 3/4" wide. Since each carving is handmade from natural materials, the one you receive may vary slightly from the one shown in in the image, although it will be very similar. Soapstone is smooth and almost silky to the touch. It should be handled with care. Handmade in Kenya.
