One might think that novelty dice are a modern idea. However, examples human-shaped dice date go as far back as the Roman Empire, and a bawdy set of 14th century dice carved in the shape of a naked man and woman (Adam & Eve?) survive in a German museum. A customer recently informed us that the originals are currently in a Museum in Koln, Germany.
They are produced in hand-poured molds, and each one is individually ground to clean up the mold lines, and then stained to mark the pips.
