  1. I never knew that; that’s very interesting. I wonder why that changed? I would think ivory would still be more difficult to procure than ebony, if ebony was actually the choice (not sure), though, in those days, I don’t think they limited themselves. I’ve never seen that; it would be kindof cool.
