Both lots are beautiful and correspond exactly to the description and pictures provided by the seller. Fast delivery and very good packaging. Very professional service altogether.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.The item was correct and the packaging good enough. The documentation was not in English. The item's true value was not stated, instead the number was 500€ (which I assume is the insurance maximum).Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hi, the true value is much higher than the Price you payed for it, the indicated Price on the shipping document has no effect on you, but the shipping compagny is perhaps more carefull. The Certificate is alway's in Dutch, as i am a Dutch seller, just as the discription on Catawiki is also in Dutch, nowhere i write that the ( free ) Certificate would be in English
You are Pleased with the item, and the Packaging was good, i Delivered as quickly as possible so i can not understand why you don't be a sport and give a positive feedback. Best Africanart.
