* The Chinese have long valued ivory for both art and utilitarian objects. Early reference to the Chinese export of ivory is recorded as early as the first century BC, ivory was moved along the Northern Silk Road for consumption by western nations. Ivory usage in the last thirty years has moved towards mass production of souvenirs and jewelry, flatware handles, furniture inlays, and piano keys.
