Note: Bone or horn utensils have been used as crockery in many countries for centuries. However, the German legislator demands for their use a food law certification according to the Food and Consumer Goods Act (LFBG), which unfortunately is very expensive and would have a negative effect on the favorable selling price of our goods. So we offer this product almost only as a prop or replica, which is at least by definition not certified for food.
