      Ivory and Gold sapphicstanzas. Summary: “It appears I’m more popular than I had ever dreamed,” he announced with some bravado, but it did little to lessen his growing anxiety. The people gathered at the wide conference table in front of him found little amusement in the comment. Hastily, the man closed Yuuri’s book and looked up. © American Gold Star Mothers, Inc.

      History of Ivory Carvings. Art of carving ivory for ornamental or useful purposes, practiced from prehistoric to modern times. The ivory most frequently used is obtained from elephant tusks, but other types of ivory or substitute materials include the tusks, teeth, horns, and bones of the narwhal, walrus, and other animals, as well as vegetable ivory and synthetic ivories.   Macdonald is one of my favorite of the hard-boiled writers, and The Ivory Grin is an exceptionally good example of the Archer books. It may not stack up against the absolute best in the series (so far, my favorite is the 1st-- The Moving Target) but is still a fine fine book. Recommended. Particularly for fans of the genre/5(5).

      Historically, genuine ivory has been difficult to obtain, highly sought after and, consequently, an expensive luxury item. In some ways ivory is very similar to precious metals and gemstones. But while gold and silver have carried purity marks and have been closely regulated by governments for centuries, ivory has never been subjected to.   my bridesmaids are wearing ivory dresses with a brown sash? i am getting married in May and would like ideas of what Colors they could have in their bouquet. i am having cream Calla Lillie's and cream roses and the color scheme in the venue is gold and cream.
