~CITES Notice

Lots made of or including (regardless of the percentage) endangered and other protected species of wildlife are marked with the symbol ~ in the catalogue. This material includes, among other things, ivory, tortoiseshell, crocodile skin, rhinoceros horn, whalebone certain species of coral, and Brazilian rosewood. You should check the relevant customs laws and regulations before bidding on any lot containing wildlife material if you plan to import the lot into another country. Several countries refuse to allow you to import property containing these materials, and some other countries require a license from the relevant regulatory agencies in the countries of exportation as well as importation. In some cases, the lot can only be shipped with an independent scientific confirmation of species and/or age, and you will need to obtain these at your own cost.

This lot must either be shipped to its final destination within the United States or personally picked up in New York. A buyer taking this lot outside of the United States is responsible for ensuring that this lot is hand-carried in compliance with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Personal Effects Exemption as well as all U.S. Customs regulations, or otherwise shipped in accordance with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations. It is a buyer’s responsibility to ensure they are legally importing the lot into the destination country in full compliance with the laws of the country of importation. Please familiarize yourself with the applicable U.S. laws and the country of importation's laws before bidding on this lot. A failure to obtain any required export and/or import permits from the applicable authority (and any consequences from failing to transport this lot in accordance with applicable laws and regulations) is not a ground for cancellation of the sale of the lot. NYS sales taxes will be applied against the purchase upon personal pickup of the lot or shipment of the lot to an address in New York.

Please note, there is a pending restriction that may require Christie’s to cease importing into California any property containing certain CITES materials and buyers may be required to pick up that property from Christie’s New York office.
