Hakusui Shichifukujin

What do our Japanese art experts know about the Hakusui Ivory Co. of Yokohama? What I found on Google is very spotty information. Is this an old company dealing in antique ivory or a 20th Century outfit flaunting the laws against the use of elephant ivory? If I see elephant ivory on E-Bay with the Hakusui name on it, can I assume it be old ivory and hence exempt from the current restrictions? Or no? Seem to be a lot of ads on E-Bay for elephant ivory which kind of took me aback.

Someone I know claims to have a complete seven piece set of the Shichifukujin, carved in ivory and bearing the Hakusui trademark. The Shichifukujin, of course, are the Seven Lucky Gods of Japanese folklore (anyone with access to Wikipedia can figure that out). But would a complete set from Hakusui have any outstanding monetary value?

Just askin'?
