CITES Licences

Dealing in Asian art brings me into regular contact with materials that may have certain restrictions on importing into countries outside the EU. Ivory, certain types of shell and some horn being the most often encountered. We are experts in ensuring the safe legal movement of many of these materials to various countries ensuring that they are accompanied by a valid CITES certificate. I am able to provide these certificates for the objects that I sell and will happily guide you through the correct procedures, ensuring safe passage for your valuable work of art.
