Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.the sale contains a mask on a metal stand as shown in 7 photo's and the metal stand was not excluded in the description. The mask arrived without the metal stand.The seller didn't answer my email .Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hello, I went out a few weeks and as I have no smartphone, me acquaints this day of your negative evaluation. I did not know that display stands were de facto included in the sale. Especially as this one is just used to maintain the mask the time(weather) of the photo. This heavy mask was hung on(collided) on a wall at my home(with me). This display stand is not thus a base adapted to this type(chap) of mask. But if you insist I can send him(it) to you all the same. If you indicate me your e-mail address I could send you a photo. In every case I am really sorry because I should have mentioned that the base was not to sell. Looking forward to your reply. Cordially.
