    Compliment voor de snelle verzending.
    De foto van het bronzen beeld op de veilingsite van Catawiki was misleidend. De glans van het brons daar geeft een veel lichtere
    touch, dan de werkelijke glans.

    Uitstekend contact gehad met verkoper. Vanwege de kwetsbaarheid is de klok met coupes niet per post verstuurd maar hebben wij elkaar halverwege onze woonplaatsen ontmoet. Een heel prettig contact!

    Bell’oggetto. Spedizione veloce. Piccolo difetto sulla croce che a mio giudizio era bene fare presente nella descrizione poiché dalle foto era impossibile vedere.
    Grazie

    Dear Stefano,
    I am happy to see that you received the package in good condition. You wrote me that you like them and you paid only 25 Euro for this nice set of Chinese vases. I did my best to speed up the delivery and you received the vases within 10 days after I sent them, which was within 3 days after you paid them. I would greatly appreciate if you could change your negative feedback. It is not within my power to speed up the delivery after I gave out the package to the courier and I have contacted the courier three times on your behalf. I hope you enjoy the vases. Best regards, Mozhgan.
