Please sign this petition to #MakeBowsExempt from the Ivory Act - https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/237247
Musicians, music shops and auction houses are going to be severely affected by a new requirement to register bows of stringed instruments under the Ivory Act. The practicalities of doing so, along with the cost will make it very difficult – and in some cases impossible - to buy and sell antique bows. Whilst the ethics of this Act cannot be faulted, the practical application can. The only outcome of having to register, and pay a fee for such a small fragment of antique ivory, will be unnecessary damage and devaluation of bows.
A Buyer's Premium of 20% will be added to the final bid price of each Lot. VAT may be applicable.
