    Colis égaré par PostN, recherches en cours.
    Ce n'est pas la 1ère fois. Le vendeur n'y est pour rien. Il a envoyé le colis dans le délai mais PostNL en France c'est une catastrophe.

    Livraison OK, mais il est regrettable que l'état de l'objet n'ait pas été mieux précisé concernant plusieurs recollages: chapiteau / sculpture centrale (d'ailleurs reçue coupée en 2 parties)

    We are sorry we did not mention that the central part was restored. Usually we make a description of the damage and restorations. We have forgotten to do it for this piece. That is our mistake. Thank you for your comment.
