IVORY LAW
Some of the objects we offer for sale incorporate or are made from Antique Elephant Ivory. As supporters of Fauna and Flora International we deplore the illegal poaching of elephants and would like more people in the UK to fund conservation and education projects involving indigenous African peoples so that their living conditions be improved, and the elephants they live with are saved from extinction.
    It is important to understand that although ivory was always a valuable commodity, it was once a widely available material as the existence of the African Elephant was not threatened by the demand for land, or by the invention of modern firearms. Since ancient times ivory has been prized by artists and craftsmen as a responsive, lustrous and pleasing material. It was cut, carved and etched to create historically and religiously significant works of art for hundreds of years.
     All of the works of art sold by Finch and Co that contain, or are made of ivory, are genuinely antique (the law in the UK currently states that all worked ivory must pre date 1947) and as such can be legally sold in the UK and transferred to most other European countries without the need for a license. However, we can obtain a C.I.T.E.S license in advance of a shipment if required and also advise on the importation regulations of any country outside the European Union.
