Ivory and Endangered Species Prospective purchasers are advised that certain property offered may be subject to Dutch legislation relating to endangered species and environmental conservation. The export of any of these lots may require a special license from the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) office. Several countries prohibit the importation of property containing materials of endangered species such as ivory, tortoiseshell, rhinoceros horn, and whalebone. Irrespective of percentage, prospective purchasers should familiarise themselves with relevant customs regulations prior to bidding if they intend to import any such property into another country. Whilst Christie's is pleased to assist buyers with applications for export and import permits, buyers are reminded that they are ultimately responsible for satisfying export and import regulations and Christie's cannot guarantee the successful outcome of license applications. Please contact the Tribal Art dept if you have any further questions.
