ALASKAN NATIVE ESKIMO CARVINGS

(Continued)

 

03/28/2017  DUE TO CHANGES IN THE LAWS REGARDING ALL IVORY, 
WE ARE FROM THIS DATE FORWARD 
OFFERING OUR $1+ MILLION DOLLAR COLLECTION OF 
IVORY ITEMS WE HAVE ACCUMULATED OVER THE PAST 22 YEARS AT
A 45% OFF DISCOUNT, ON THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:


Woolly Mammoth Tusk items, Boar's Tusk & skulls, Hippo teeth, Sperm whale teeth, Orca teeth, Narwhal tusk, Walrus tusk

AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON THE ALASKA CARVINGS PAGES 1, 2, 3, 4: 
Sperm whale teeth, Orca teeth, and Walrus tusk items


We only ship ivory within the United States as it is; in addition, we are unable to ship ivory to these states:  

California, Hawaii (all ivory); New York, New Jersey (elephant tusks and rhino horn/teeth)
As long as the remaining states have not banned ivory sales, we will continue this sale, since it is legal to sell, and therefore legal to own.  
If a ban is extended to your state, it is still legal to own what you have purchased in perpetuity, but not to re-sell.  

We expect the bans to expand over time to eventually include all 50 states.  By all indications this will likely take place within the next 2-3 years
Prices shown are full-price, please take 45% off at the time you make payment.
