It is illegal to import ivory into the United States, however any ivory inside this country may be legally bought or sold. We do not support the poaching of ivory, and we are very concerned about the survival of the elephant and would never do anything that we feel would endanger the species. It is a practical matter that people must sell ivory to settle estates, divorces, and financial difficulties.

Blanc de Chien ( white from China ) porcelain is usually associated with Dehua kilns. She was made from a mold, not on a potter's wheel. Incised and applied decorations were added by skilled artisans and the wares are fired at the highest possible temperature. The clay itself is quite unusual, having very little iron oxide in it, which allows for the unusual pure color. The shiny wet looking glaze melded to the porcelain makes it so appealing.
