Important Notice on the Export of Antique Elephant Ivory (CITES)

Please note that as the chess set contains antique elephant ivory (dating from earlier than March 3rd 1947) it will require a CITES export licence to export to destinations outside the European Union. Due to recent US legislation, it is with regret that we are unable to export this item to the United States of America. Please contact me if you need further information.
