Oh, yes, indeed. I did wonder if the "mercury" was more about the effect than the content, but as you say, better safe than sorry....
I have had a listing for antique ivory, attached to silver hallmarked 1897, removed as I didn't have "documentary proof that the ivory was produced before 1947."
Well, excuse me, what is the hallmark about then??? :shock:
and did you know that you shouldn't list fantasy in an auction title anymore, regardless of what the item is, as if you get reported they can say that with this word you are`inciting a fetish??!!
