  • Lovely Gentleman, we had a slight issue with the item. He immediately and graciously not only made it right but went over & above to make it better.

    Wonderful to deal with, & I hope to do again.

    Gezien de herkomst van de tekening heb ik geen twijfel aan de echtheid. Als dat wel zo geweest zou zijn had ik deze niet aangeboden voor de veiling. De veilingmeester van Catawiki heeft het item goedgekeurd. Ik kan mij in uw twijfel helaas niet vinden. Dat neemt niet weg dat ik het wel vervelend vind.
