  • Disappointed. Image was trimmed and pasted to board. This could have been checked & advised by simply taking the back off the frame.

    As I wrote on the side of Catawiki the engraving was not controled behind the glass,
    Therefore I could not see if the engraving was well or not trimmed or pasted. There is allways a small risk with engravings in a frame.
