Notes
Title suppled by cataloger. Donor should be notified before displayed in public. These items were collected by donor's husband beginning in the 1970s. He collected ivory from an importer that had a store in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, IL. They were displayed in the couple's home. After the collector's death, the donor no longer wished to continue display the items. He chose to donate the items rather than sell them as he did not wish to perpetuate the trading ivory.
Summary
