Do you own anything made of ivory?


Antique ivory can be highly collectable and very valuable. However rising concerns about conservation have made the manufacture of new items made of ivory unacceptable. Do you still own anything made of ivory?

    Many people are starting to think that way now. Unfortunately far too many still do not. That's why my country (South Africa) is having such a huge problem trying to control rhino poaching before the rhinoceros becomes extinct.

    I agree entirely. I've got some antique ivory that I bought when I was less aware of such issues. But I have no intention of adding to the collection.
