1. Spectacular Ivory Elephant Cane-Ca. 1880-Substantial ivory knob carved in fine and naturalistic detail to depict an elephant head with rugged skin, bent trunk flanked by two mighty tusks, tiny eyes and large ears. The bulk head is amazingly adapted to the form of the handle and comes with its plain silver collar on an ebony shaft partly carved with a twist and embellished with extensive ivory dot inlay. The profile of the handle speaks for an English origin while the adorned shaft seems to have Indian ties..-H. 4 ¼” x 2 ½”, OL. 33 ¾”-$2,000-$3,000
The ivory Loxodonta Africana in this cane complies with pre-cites and the Endangered Species Act 1973 which are currently the law in the United States. It is our opinion that this cane was made before 1973 and the ivory has not been repaired or altered. Each lot in this auction is in our opinion legal to sell in the USA except in states that have restrictions. Please check your state law.Species Authority:(Blumenbach, 1797)Common Name(s):English–African ElephantFrench–Éléphant d'Afrique, Éléphant AfricainSpanish–Elefante AfricanoKingdomPhylumClassOrderFamilyANIMALIACHORDATAMAMMALIAPROBOSCIDEAELEPHANTIDAENo new law is in effect for ivory that complies with the ESA.
