Ivory and Rhino Horn Policy

Ivory and Rhino Horn Policy

Toovey’s abhor and condemn the poaching of all species, especially African elephants and rhinoceroses. We will not, therefore, offer for sale any ivory products produced after June 1947, the date of the Convention Of International Trade In Endangered Species Of Wild Fauna And Flora (CITES). We consider pieces produced before this date are likely to be purchased as pieces of artistic or cultural merit, which happen to contain ivory, rather than be purchased for their ivory content. This is in line with current standards and Toovey’s will continue to monitor and abide by the law regarding the sale of ivory and rhino horn.
