Saleroom Notice: This lot contains ivory. Due to recent changes in the laws of many countries (e.g. U.S. and France) Sotheby's recommends that buyers check with their own government regarding any importation requirements prior to placing a bid. For example, U.S. regulations restrict the import of elephant ivory and prohibit the import of African elephant ivory. Please note that Sotheby's will not assist buyers with the shipment of this lot into the U.S.. A buyer's inability to export or import these lots cannot justify a delay in payment or sale cancellation.
Provenance: Burnie, armorial bookplate
