This lot contains ivory/coral/ tortoiseshell or other species protected by CITES regulation (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
Due to recent changes in the laws of many countries (e.g. USA or China) - about endangered species including but not limited to coral, ivory and tortoiseshell - BFA recommends that buyers check with their own government regarding any importation requirements prior to placing a bid. For example, USA regulations restrict the import of elephant ivory; please note that BFA will not assist buyers with the shipment of this lot into the USA.

THE CITES ARTICLE 8 DEROGATION
The CITES Article 8 derogation - Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 - the so-called "antique derogation" allow to sell this kind of item (defined as pre-1947). Current legislation states that if an item has been manufactured prior to June 1947 and has been significantly altered from its natural raw state for jewellery, adornment, art, utility or musical instrument before that date, a CITES certificate is not required (then is only true for material that has been "worked" before 1947, and has been transformed from its natural state by human craft).
