    Looks fantastic Glen, i'm so envious, if only we could work with ivory in the UK, you cannot even rework old ivory it's simply not allowed by the crazy liberal left wing laws we have in the UK.

    Strange,because the UK has more Raw Ivory in storage than anyplace in the world today.
    Two yrs ago some british agency sold at auction 100,000 kg, to a buyer in China for 1.3 mil,Cheap.

    You are probably right, that's why they sell it to every country in the world, except their own, that's exactly how the hypocrisy of crazy left wing Britain works. this piece is a snippit from a thread over on the shaving room, when someone had a vintage shaving brush.

    Jamie.

    According to UK and EU laws in conjunction with CITES (Convention International Trade in Endangered Species) the trade in Ivory is banned out right, this means that the sale, transport, import export, etc. is strictly prohibited, the only exception is to antique specimens.

    For an Ivory to be classified as an antique specimen it must predate 1 June 1947.
    The ivory must be in a worked form, this means all unworked ivory, off cuts, tusks, teeth, etc. are prohibited to be exported, imported or sold.


    However...
    The ivory must be in its original worked form, this basically means that if the item has been repaired one needs to be certain that the repair is pre ban. A common misconception here lies with people believing that old ivory can be re worked, it cant!!! I know it seems strange (and in my mind silly too), but the re-knotting in the 1970s classifies it as being repaired/reworked, and that makes it an illegal piece.

    I came across this problem recently with an antique guitar with a split bridge needing repair. The ivory saddle (not modified) was removed and refitted into the repaired bridge. That was enough to fall foul of the law. The item had been reworked/repaired, and the owner got done for it, even though the repair was done by the same company who made the original guitar. They won't touch that type of repair now as a result of that episode.

    Interesting read,thx for posting it.
    back in the day I used to buy Ivory Billiard balls from an old UK Ivory trader (early 70s),sadley he is long gone.
    It was his contention that your govt, put the stringent laws you now have in place purely out of a feeling of extream Guilt for past deeds.
    It was the british that Decimated the elephant herds in both Africa and India in the late 1800s and well into the 1900s strictly to amass huge amts of Ivory,What the poachers take today pales in comparison.
