the catalogue, subject to amendments announced by the auctioneer during the sale when presenting
the lot.

* Objects presented containing less than 20% Elephantidae spp (I/A) ivory or rhinocerotidae spp (I/A)
horn, (I/A) processed, pre-Convention, prior to 2 March 1947 and therefore in accordance with EC Rule
338/97 of 09/12/1996 art.2-Wmc, the French Orders of 16 August 2016 amended and 4 May 2017, are
for sale freely.
For an exit from the European Union, a CITES re-export certificate will be required, which is the
responsibility of the future buyer. The issuance of such a document is not automatic.
For a possible re-export, it will be up to the successful tenderer to obtain information - prior to any
purchase - from the customs authorities of the country concerned, particularly in the case of the United
States.
On the other hand, objects presented containing more than 20% Elephantidae spp (I/A) ivory or
rhinocerotidae spp (I/A) horn, (I/A) processed, pre-Convention, prior to 2 March 1947 and therefore in
accordance with EC Regulation 338/97 of 09/12/1996 art.2-Wmc, and prior to 1 July 1975 and therefore in
accordance with the French decrees of 16 August 2016 amended and 4 May 2017, may be marketed after
declaration and obtaining a D permit.
To this end, the person awarded for having bid by any means whatsoever for a lot containing more than
20% elephant ivory (elephantidae spp.) or rhino horn (rhinocerotidae spp.), and manufactured before
3 March 1947, authorises Drouot Estimations to make the necessary purchase declaration on his
behalf to the competent administration in accordance with Article 2bis of the amended decree of
16 August 2016.
The successful tenderer, required to make a declaration, undertakes to provide Drouot Estimations
without delay with all the information necessary for this purpose and to do all the due diligence that
would be required of him by Drouot Estimations to do so.
The successful tenderer alone shall be required to carry out all other due diligence resulting from the
particular nature of such a lot under his responsibility. In particular, it is up to him to take the steps
required by his possible resale or export.
For an exit from the European Union, a CITES re-export certificate will be required, which is the
responsibility of the future buyer. The issuance of such a document is not automatic.
For a possible re-export, it will be up to the successful tenderer to obtain information - prior to any
purchase - from the customs authorities of the country concerned, particularly in the case of the United
States.
OBLIGATION: For the delivery of the lot, the successful tenderer must present his identity document and
provide his contact details.
Absentee and phone bids
Auctioneers and experts execute, free of charge, absentee and phone bids, for those who cannot attend
the sale.
Anyone wishing to set up a phone bid will need to send a request by email, attaching a copy of his ID
and bank details, at the latest the day before the sale.
Experience reveals that communications are not always possible due to technical problem or lack of
reception, therefore a phone bid request assumes that THE BUYER AGREES TO BID TO THE LOW
ESTIMATE PLUS ONE MORE BID in case the connection is lost for any reason.
Drouot Estimations cannot be responsible for failing to execute a bid.
To request an absentee or phone bid: bids@drouot.com
