Mammoth Ivory Question

Mark in FL

Recommended Posts

I am carving a skull out of Mammoth Ivory that I traded for some time ago. The schreger lines are quite visible on the top of the piece. The customer is in England and I am in the USA. As there has been a crack down on Elephant Ivory lately my concern is that custom might seize the piece. What can I include to make sure that this does not happen. I once received package of mammoth Ivory that had a form with photos of the schreger lines and an explanation.


Any help would be appreciated. I want to make sure that customs does not seize this but also want to be honest in declaring what it is.


Thank You

Hi Mark,


Thank you for asking that question. I don't have an answer, and am uneasy about the situation as well. If you find a reassuring answer, please post it here.


I am sorry that I am of no help with this question.
