Most ivories on these pages will be elephant or mammoth.   All of the elephant ivory is vintage and acquired through estates and individuals and was legally imported in years past.  Carved pieces of Mammoth ivory may  be vintage or contemporary and come from the Wooly Mammoth.  Read about the Wooly Mammoth, its environs, and its eras in history here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woolly_mammoth .  Other ivories will be identified when their source is known.
