    Bijzondere ets. Op tijd en goed ontvangen. Jammer dat het papier is beschadigd (ingescheurd; lichte en goed zichtbare vouwen). Met een pass partout krijgt het mooie van de ets weer alle aandacht.

    Poco fiable, alega que la dirección de entrega no era correcta, cuando es la misma de todas mis compras y que llegan sin problema. Importe de pago devuelto por gestiones directas con CATAWIKI

    The article had not arrived yet.It is nonsense from Catawiki to bother clients with requests for feedback while the e-mail says "send" so not "ARRIVED" so that the clients are NOT able to give f.back.
